  1. Wendy, it is helpful when you find a family all in one spot.

  2. I must admit, I have spent many an hour looking at tombstones - wondering why a life had been cut short or what a person had done with their 98 years of life. It is fascinating. My husband's family have a family burial plot. Thank you for the post, Wendy.

  3. my father and mother are laying far from each other and it hurts my soul in deep
