In the United States, we celebrate Memorial Day this week end. The holiday, formerly known as Decoration Day, originated after the American Civil War. The cemetery is about 6 miles from the farm.
Driving the narrow country road, you will find the historical church and cemetery located in the middle of the large group of trees, on the right side of the road.
The cemetery is connected to Saints Cyril and Methodius Catholic Church. The sign over the entrance is metal with the words cut out. You can see that some words have the blue sky showing through and some words, are white from the clouds.

The church is part of the historical Painted Church Tour. I'll give you the grand tour of this church, next week.
This week end is a time to remember all our fallen soldiers and their families.....
