I was trying to come up with something for today’s post that would go with the occasion but all I could come up with were these photos I took of a very old cemetery in northern Ohio that we found while on a little road trip. Cemeteries used to give me the creeps when I was a child and I wouldn’t go near them but now there is something interesting about them; the history in headstones fascinate me.
These were the first ones I’d ever seen in all of my explorations that had the ages of death down to the year, month and day. Some headstones were very plain and simple (and very thin either originally or due to weathering and time) while others were a bit more ornate. Then there is the one here showing what must have been a hard loss for a family with losing their children so young. It made me wonder what might have claimed their little lives.
May your day be filled with lots of treats and no tricks…unless you like that sort of thing of course. We shall be enjoying a large bowl (or two) of popcorn while watching movie marathons.
