Well the worst has happened! Not only is my home town of Chicago shamed by the silent goings on of Oakwoods Cemetary & others like it who have been re-selling graves for many many many years, but the former (and I am entitled to say this) the formerly wonderful town & mayor of Bensenville sold the cemetary lands that are located respectfully 300+ feet from the runway of ohare airport for a miserable paltry sum of $369K The town I dont see how has the right to sell it - as it belonged to the church... so now that means the founding fathers of Schiller Park (which that area used to be at one time)The Kolze Family, about 15 or so of my family members, Rohlfes', Munstermanns, Winkleman's, and more will be unwillingly torn from their resting places to be relocated with out the family knowing or being notified where they will be re interred. UNBELIEVEABLE! I have lost touch with Dirk & Wendy, so I am hoping they get this message... Be well family hope to hear from you soon :(
Take Care
