Remembering our heroes

Vietnam Veteran John Tinker, who has been the sexton at the Long Rapids Cemetery for seven years, has been decorating the Long Rapids Cemetery for Memorial Day for the past 10 years. The Sunday School children from Long Rapids First Congregational Church help him every year. In this picture, he is decorating the cemetery with his great-grandson, Bentley Hall (16 months old). This photo was submitted by Jenny Zdybel, Tinker’s daughter.
