I thought it would be a bit of a rerun for us, but Shannon focused on almost totally different stories. He is a fabulous guide and made the history of... More

I could not have titled your review post better! Our fans keep returning time and time again because with a cemetery stretching for over 200 acres, you can never really talk about it all as much as believe you me, I'm trying! Always means there's new things to learn and share and with praise such as yours? Keeps me motivated... More

I confess that I take some extra pleasure in touring fellow Illinoisians or Ilini. It means maybe word-of-mouth back there will keep my name alive in the old home state more than the usual! I sincerely appreciate your patronage, participation, engaging conversation and of course, the compliment of a generous review! Keeps me going! More
