Visting Grandma

Teresa Elpers of Holland brings flowers to the gravesite of her grandparents at Fairmount Cemetery in Huntingburg on Tuesday. “I miss my grandmother terribly,” Elpers said. “She was like a mother to me.” As the last remaining family member in the area, Elpers said she has taken it upon herself to visit at least twice a year to take care of the grave. “Grandma always loved the flowers,” she said. “Her yard was full of flowers, everywhere. So I always try and get something bright and pretty for her.”
