We all have a story to tell. Some speak louder than others. Listen closely to hear the stories of our ancestors echoing under our footsteps. They are the authors. We are the keepers.

  1. Herstoryan,
    I will be so glad when google/blogger get their issues resolved so I can again see the posted pictures. ---- Really irritating that I miss so much. Nevertheless, I keep on reading.

  2. I always like to see the flat stones well taken care of. I several cemeteries around here, the stones are often overgrown with grass and soil. This is a very pretty stone.
