I have the opportunity to take a walk a couple of times a week with my friend Ginny. Its about a mile to our local cemetery and its very peaceful there as the sun comes up. The three stones to the right belong to the family that built our historic home.
There are a lot of Dixons here in Payson, and this marker heads the Dixon portion of the cemetery.
Ginny is a genealogy buff and found out that she has family who is buried here in Payson, though she grew up in Washington state. The child's broken head stone below belongs to a family member as well.
She and I have decided that come spring we will do a fund raiser to raise money to have the broken stone placed in cement, like the one to the right ... there are several old stones of this vintage which have broken over time.
Did you know that cemeteries are a favorite haunt of birders? I didn't, but its been fun to find out more about birds from them ... owls are evidently a favorite in ours.
I just wanted to finish up by showing this large and ornate monument, its probably the largest in our grounds. I love cemeteries with old dimensional markers, when we were in Paris, they were some of my favorite sites to visit ... such amazing and charming statuary.
So do you find cemeteries to be creepy or peaceful?
