Last week, deceased First World War veteran William A. Stevenson was presented with a brand new grave-stone by the New Westminster-based Society of the Officers of the Honourable Guard. Stevenson died 79 years ago but because he had no family in the city when he died, he never received a gravestone. Last year, the society set out to raise the money to buy Stevenson a stone, and it raised so much money it now plans to buy gravestones for all veterans buried without one at Fraser Cemetery.
