Walking though cemetery I always found fascinating, and how people mark there grave of there family and friends.
So Regis and I went up to the Paradise Cemetery, he took a ghost hunting thingy Mcbobber.
I'm clueless if ghost or spirit can see or hear. But I have to say there is pretty view from there.
The sun at the time we was walking around had a glare on lot of the head stone, so some photo I ended deleting.
Question time...what sort of symbols or marking do you want on your tombstone. There was some graves with just plain marker name with birth year and death year. My parents has a plain tombstone.
I wonder if these people who had plain marker were just "plain every day folks" nothing fancy about them. Drank there coffee from mug, and when they had quest just pass whiskey bottle around.
This grave is of young man who serve his country and was killed over in Afghanistan, he was in my son Bart high school class.
I've seen grave where people place STONES or COIN on the tombstone. This grave had quite a few coins.
There was variety of design on the headstone. One I saw was a "stairway leading to open gate" Led Zeppelin did a song in early 70 STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
Tried to a little bit of search on google trying to figure what the story behind a set of stairs on grave maker. But I found actual stairs leading into a mausoleum.
Opinion time...I believe the open gate represent going into anther dimension or to go on into anther stage.
Well there quite a few graves around here with an elk. One thing bother me I knew a local lady that died who was quite the knitter and there was no knitting needles on ball of yarn on her side of the headstone.
Opinion time...It seem like he had control over the headstone, and it seem a little male chauvinist.
I did fine a link about the meaning of an ELK
Coffee is on
