Veterans – Commemorating Those Who Served


When Kathy Gidcumb thinks of her dad, she thinks of his service and just how important his service was to him. Tom Revane went on to marry, raise a family and serve his community, his parish and was a proud member of the Knights of Columbus. “When you speak to a family about funeral arrangements for a Veteran, it becomes clear that being a proud Veteran is part and parcel of who they are”, states Marya Gibbons. Added Thomas A. Gibbons Jr., “That moment where you present the flag to a family and state ‘On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation’, the gravity of the service and sacrifice made by the men and women who served is impossible to misunderstand”. With Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery nearby, a veteran and a spouse can be buried at no charge for the burial expenses. Because the Lincoln National Cemetery was opened rather recently, many veterans and families are unaware of this earned benefit. For details, contact Tom or Marya Gibbons at 630.832.0018 or click here.

Kathy Gidcumb says it best, “It really was done, just lovely”.
