|Facing Eternity Together|
Modern Day Symbols of LOVE:
Epitaphs abound in the cemetery, but those that are loving tribute are the most common. Sometimes a simple word says it all:
|God Gives Us Love,|
Something to Love He Lends Us.
|Together Throughout Eternity|
It Broke My Heart
To Lose You,
But You Didn't Go Away,
Part of Me Went With You
The Day God Called
Although this is difficult to see well, the sentiment is truly touching. I photographed this through the window of a mausoleum. It is a written tribute and photo to a wife, from her husband.
We are beginning to include photos and etchings on stones, once again. Although this was popular in the early to mid twentieth century, it fell out of favor until the turn of this century.
And the one that seems to sum up those words of love the best:
But the Greatest of These is Love!
