An Unexpected Reunion by Ron Bremer

“An Unexpected Reunion”
Ron Bremer
Paradise, Utah

A lady in Indianapolis, Indiana shared the experience that when she was ten years old her grandfather died. She attended the funeral and burial services. Years later when she was older, she began to do genealogy and wanted to tie the links of her family together. She wanted to find the cemetery and her grandfather’s tombstone, but because she was only ten years old when she first saw it, she wasn’t sure she could remember where it was located. She drove east of the cemetery area and managed to locate the old cemetery. After walking around for awhile, she found her grandfather’s plot. To her amazement, standing beside the tombstone was the spirit of her grandfather. He had tears running down his cheeks as if to thank her for beginning the great work of their family’s genealogy.
