EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is a touching and poignant remembrance written by Jo Dermody. Mrs. Dermody wrote this response after reading an RFFM.org column titled, "Arlington Natl. Cemetery's Old Guard: Not All of Washington, D.C. Shut Down During Snow Storm" http://rffm.typepad.com/republicans_for_fair_medi/2010/02/arlington-cemetery-honor-guard-not-all-of-washington-dcshut-down-during-snow-storm-by-lyle-j-rapacki.html Mrs. Dermody gives a description of her husband's burial at Arlington National Cemetery. Though John Dermody does not rest in the Tomb of the Unknowns, his body lays in hallowed ground, but his spirit resides in a Heavenly place.
My husband John was buried at Arlington National Cemetery on May 15, 2007. My four kids wanted him there. He did not care. Rather he said, "it will be so far for mom if she wanted to put flowers on the grave."
