Walter and Betsy Cronkite

I grew  up listening to Walter Cronkite and the news will never be the same without him. Cronkite's creamated remains are interred with his wife in Mount Moriah and Freeman Cemetery in south Kansas City, MO. The marker for his wife, Betsy, who preceded him in death, was replaced with this new marker below.
