  1. Oh, how sad! It looks like Jennie lived a nice long life, but her two children(?) did not. Interesting grave marker - looks like marble.

  10. Visually, quite an impressive photo, Tanya. Once you get past the visual aspect and look at the content....well, makes you think a little. Good job!

  12. Wide variability in lifetimes. Those stones are very moldy, aren't they?
