According to the Village of Heron County records, Jamiela Van Powel was buried on the twelfth of September in 2011, at Simper Cemetery. If you were then to probe deeper you would find that that particular day was rather crisp, fall, day, not too much to be out of the ordinary but enough that the mourners had to wear jackets. If you were to trace to weather patterns further you would find that it rained earlier that day so that the grass was rather moist and they almost had to put a tarp over the grave to keep it dry. If you then decided to look even deeper, you could find she was buried at the age of seventeen, survived by her father, sisters and twin brother. You would find her plot had cost exactly six hundred, seventy two dollars and forty two cents, not counting the grave stone. You would find that said plot rested in the west end of the cemetery right near the oak trees to provide just enough shade that the grass never died there in the hot Oklahoma summers. At last if you had exhausted every last point of information and visited said plot you would see a nice granite head stone that said, “Jamie Van Powel, 1995-2011, daughter, sister, friend, and hero.” This fact would prove your first grain of information false; for it was Jamie Van Powel buried on that September afternoon, not the posh Jamiela whose name had been laid to rest years ago.
Official records really never tell the whole story.
