My g-g-g-grandfather, g-g-g-grandmother and g-g-g step grandmothers graves. Of all the stones in the cemetery these were the only ones vandalized. The bars are in reverse order but if I flip the picture, the etchings on the stones become reversed as well. Perhaps it is more fitting anyway that the height of the stones reflect lifes timeline.

You've got some big bars in the first one. That tower in the middle reminds me of a childs toy where there is a cup or basket on the end of a handle or stick and a ball attached by a string. The object is to catch the ball in the basket.

Vandalism is a pox upon the earth. It serves no purpose other than an outlet for misguided energy of the perpetrators. Your shots of the graves somewhat illustrate the state of society today. Has any attempt been made to repair the damaged markers? Depending on how long it has been since the damage was done, I would think they might be able to drill into the edge of the stones and insert some steel rods for reinforcement. That plus some grout might do a fairly good job. I don't know if anyone has thought of that idea but if they haven't, I want credit for it! :-):-)
