Charles E. Bigler
Commander, United States Navy
One Of The Most Beautiful Inscriptions In Arlington National Cemetery.
Born on July 12, 1924, Commander Bigler died on 25 December 2003 and was laid to rest in Section 7-A of Arlington National Cemetery.

His wife, Bernice Rains Bigler (October 27, 1920-February 28, 1989) is buried in his gravesite in Section 7-A of Arlington National Cemetery. The inscription on their stone is certainly indicative of my thoughts about Arlington.

"Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
Each headstone represents a story to be told, a past to be remembered."

They are the parents of Philip Bigler, former historian at Arlington National Cemetery and author of the fine book, "In Honored Glory - Arlington National Cemetery: The Final Post." It is available at book stores and via Amazon.Com on the Internet.
