So yesterday I was talking about the local cemetery and giving you some of it's lovely history, I didn't get to the parts that really got to me or caught my eye.
Lets start with what caught my eye.
A mind could go wild as to what this is doing in a cemetery or what it says about the person it is for.
This is a piece of one of the poorer quality crosses. It was laying under a bush with a sea shell laid on top of it.
Now on to the more interesting stones...
Thy life was beauty, truth, goodness and love. If I was to get buried and have a headstone...Yup, I want that! The sweetest definition of someones life. Don't cha think?
A real live (umm..no. I meant dead) Texas Ranger! How cool is that for this little tiny town?!
This angel is awesome! Although she looks to have had some really rough times trying to protect her cemetery.
Another thing I noticed was that all the headstones are facing the east. Anyone know why?
This little decoration tugged at my heart. A little five year old boy, who would be nine today. He was truly loved and is sorely missed. I'm sure.
This stone was hiding in a bushy tree and all you can see is the years. Yes folks he/she was only a year old, but that is not what bothered me. It was the fact that if you didn't notice it when standing in a certain spot, then you would never notice it at all. You see the green bushy tree to the left of the angel's head (above pic), it was hiding under the other side of it.
Another thing I noticed is that if the grave was in an enclosed gate or framed with a cement border, the upkeep must be up to family members or someone else cause this poor grave needs some maintenance! I find that curious since the rest of the place is kept up real well.
I have one more stone that has consumed my brain, but you'll have to wait for that post cause I am currently trying to gather some info on it.
