Cemeteries are unique places in our lives. Some are beautiful, some are historic, and some are even entertaining. There is a quiet sadness about all cemeteries because they are the final resting places of our loved ones. We intend to post pictures here of cemeteries and head stones that are original photographs. We are looking for beauty, dignity, funny and above all something interesting. Feel free to comment and to contribute. We will provide a mail box if you want to contribute.

Old Gnome?

Who is that “Old Soul” resting beneath the stone bearing his name?

Would you believe he sleeps in a Hawaiian shirt, flannel PJ bottoms and sandals?
Indeed! He sleeps with just the slightest whisper of a smile while closed eyes dream.
Rest assured, though a winter snow has fallen, he is wrapped in a bear hug of love above.
I placed a garden gnome holding a lantern by his marker -
lighting the way for those of us that love him to one day follow him home.

(Riverside Cemetery, Milford, N.H., Dec. 28, 2009)
