Thank You Earline

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

Monuments here, at Friendship Cemetery in Columbus Mississippi -- this is the cemetery at which many credit the tradition of Memorial Day (there are other places in the country that also claim this) as citizens of Columbus decorated both Rebel and Yankee graves in 1866, when the region was still smarting from the war.  Inside, some really terrific monuments:

Among the more currently traditional, this scraped plot:

"My precious wife for 71 years 10 months 25 days.  Thank you G-d for her life.  Thank you Earline for giving me your all."
