Lovely remembrances from a concert stage


BETTINA HANSEN / THE SEATTLE TIMES

Isabella Reichert, one of several midshipmen from the Navy ROTC at the University of Washington place about 1,500 roses on gravesites at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery at Evergreen Washelli Memorial Park Sunday, May 12, 2013. This is the third year that the roses from the Ten Grands Seattle/Seattle Symphony concert have been donated to be placed on the graves. The last two years, Army ROTC from Seattle University put the roses in place. Monday, a group of volunteers from Alaska Airlines will be coming to scrub the white markers clean as a lead up to Memorial Day. There are about 5,000 veterans buried at Evergreen Washelli, including six medal of honor recipients.
