  1. My friend, Ron, pointed this out to me:

    "Looking at the info. on their tomb stones I noticed 5 things.

    B. J Lampp Oct. 15 1896 to Nov. 15 1965
    Annie T. Lampp March 15 1899 to Nov. 20 1960

    1. They were both born on the 15 th of the month
    2. They were born 5 months apart
    3. They both died in Nov.
    4. They died 5 days apart in Nov.
    5. They died 5 years apart"

    Isn't that amazing?
