Flowers remain by the grave markers on the far left while the National Flag on the pole to the left of Aaron Davis has been raised to full staff. Notes of "Amazing Grace" still flow from Aaron's bagpipes near the exit of Sheridan's Municipal Cemetery at the 12 o'clock hour.
Beneath the high flying National, State and Armed Forces flags at Sheridan's Municipal Cemetery (formerly Mount Hope Cemetery) are two smaller National flags marking the grave of US Army Paratrooper Pvt. Orval Loren Kock. The cemetery is replete with settings such as this as we remember our veterans on Memorial Day.
Many "Remember the Fallen" but once a year, Beverly (Bev) Johnson of Sheridan "Remembers the Fallen" each and every day of her life. Bev lost her 26-year old son, Marine SSgt Brian D. Bland on January 26, 2005 when he and 30 others lost their lives when his CH-53E Helicopter went down in Iraq.
