Here is the skirt made in the shape of a pentagon, with all the roses that were in Section 60 from February to April 2006. When I installed it yesterday I moved the 4 stones that were on the mulch bed and put them up on top of the skirt...  Stone origin unknown, but they are thank yous to Michael Arciola, Todd Bracy , Dale Burger and Jason Norton.

The Bixler's sent me a sweet 'Willow Tree' creature which just begged to be taken to ANC to have its picture taken on the skirt.  Along with it I brought my mom's stone photo (that lives with her flag here). It's the closest my mom's stone (at Quantico) will ever get to my dad's plaque at the  ANC Columbarium. I really like the perspective with the trees inside and out of the frame. My mom's stone is in proportion to those on the grounds.  I really like the winged faceless creature with the flowers behind her back.  I thought you'd like to see these.  They are just really neat.

Every OIF/OEF stone  on the York side has a painted 'Hero" stone on top.  The only one that varies is Dillon Jutras'. His is larger and has his name on it.
