Tombstones Of Note . . .


I wish I'd known about this web site when I was writing the Fairlawn series. On second thought, maybe I'm glad I didn't.

Strange tombstones . . . strange last wishes.

Those are great, albeit incredibly expensive, I bet! I love the Scrabble one.

One of my favorite pastimes when I was much younger was to wander through the local cemetary in whatever town I was visiting.

My most memorable adventure was during our honeymoon. We were doing our laundry at the town's only laundromat. During the drying cycle DH and I went across the street to the cemetary and wandered among the graves. There I found the most interesting epitaph: "Good riddance. I'm glad she's gone!" Wonder what that was all about..........

I love exploring cemeteries. I've seen several of the log ones around here.

It's interesting that the one that looks like a Shinto shrine has crosses in front of it.

Since my home town in the prison town there are a lot of prisoner graves in the old cemetery. They just have numbers on them. I think that's sad. I don't know where they bury prisoners now. Maybe their families choose.
