Nitta Yuma Cemetery in Nitta Yuma, MS
Alan Orlicek, the new engraver for the black granite, came up and helped unveil the headstone. Everyone was impressed with the marker and rushed to look at it and pose for pictures. A local politician had asked to say a few words in the spot on the program set aside for special guests, but about fifteen minutes after the unveiling, Cheseborough grabbed the National and started playing and singing, “I Want You to Know.” The crowd applauded at the end of the tune, and I didn’t want to interrupt at that point. I’m glad to hear it worked out well.
