Poignant quotes and neat photos to go along with them...or perhaps it's the other way around. :)

This has been the most scenic and peaceful visit to a cemetery that I have ever experienced.

I wish my parents' graves were in a cemetery just as beautiful…

Many beautiful shots. A cemetary can be a place for contemplation.

Ralph said...

The cemetery can be a place of sadness - but here is a quiet dignity that settles over the place. Sun and shadow add a feeling of life and solace, a place to remember the good times together...

The memorial reserve offers a look of nature in a peaceful setting. Sun, sky, water and a lush green carpet allow us to gather our thoughts...

Lynn said...
