  • Thank You Deb for your willing help above and beyond the call of duty !
  • I really like to explore cemeteries. They're so full of history. This one is particularly peaceful and beautiful. I love the beautiful legend posted under the beautiful "lone" tree. The tree itself is amazing and the story of young love lost (much like Romeo and Juliet) is touching and romantic.
