Cemetery Thoughts

WW1 Grave
As ever I go up to the cemetery for a walk on a Sunday ... Jiffy loves chasing the squirrels if he spots them.  Anyway, I spotted a couple of things - one amusing, but the first very sad.

One of the new gravestones up read of a boy who had died at one hour old on Christmas Day ,,, so sad.  My Granddad died on Christmas Day, but this poor family it is such a sad day.

One thing that made me smile is that many of the Victorian stones have the phrase "Peace, Perfect Peace" .  It is a line from a hymn ... but I do wonder if any of them were there because the relatives thought that it was now more peaceful once that person had gone  ... or is that just my warped mind?

~~~

Well with those random thoughts I must get on with some letter writing - Have a good Sunday

Your take on the second quote made me laugh. Now I picture some nagging busy body finally put to rest.
