"The night before he was to turn over the World War II diaries of Bert Raymer to the man's son, Mike Short learned of another link between himself and the Raymer family.

Short, 40, of Akron, who discovered the Navy diaries of Raymer more than two years ago while remodeling a Kenmore home, was making plans to meet Dick Raymer, 63, of Clearwater, Fla., at Greenlawn Memorial Park in Akron, at Bert Raymer's grave.

Short was surprised to learn that the grave is about 35 yards from where his mother, Goldie McCune, was buried last year."
