Cemeteries are one of my favorite haunts. :roll: Somewhere on my hard drive is a collection of photos from a fairly old one where I must have spent hours wandering around, taking pictures, and making up lies about the people buried there.

I wonder just how old that stone you photographed really is. It might not be any older than the oldest ones you could actually read since it could be of "inferior" quality and more prone to damage by rain and wind.

A grave marked with a stone says something...

It says a life mattered.

Its says a brother, a sister, a wife, a husband, a child, a father, a mother, a grandfather, a grandmother, a friend, a soldier is remembered.

Often, I visit the graves of those dear to me who have passed on.

Intellectually, empirically I know they are not there.

It is, however, the memory of their love that burns warm and steady in my heart...and so when I visit their graves it is that
memory that is restoked and glows anew.

Thanks for sharing your photo, wyankeegurl.

Its part of my history , when i took this and the rest of them, which i have more , we went to burie my grandfathers brother who had been creamated. My grandfather new who all the stones where, we have a lot of John Tazz's or J.T. Hudson's that go way back, my brother is a John and his son. So it was pretty neat to go up there and see it. My grandfathers father, owned all the land but sold it a long time ago, but its still a family site. My grandfather is the baby of 13 kids and the only one left now.
Thanks for all your comments. Its a touchy subject stuff like that.
I took them mainly for my history and to remember them.
Its amazing how some of them are still intacked from long ago.
and the stories my grandfather told while we were there.
