On every trip we made from New Hampshire to Stamford, Connecticut to visit with Bill's family, we almost always visited his mother's family graves in St. John's Catholic Cemetery in nearby Darien.
The graves were all well looked after by the family and were decorated with flags, both cut and planted flowers, and always palm fronds at Easter.
