This cemetery was grown up in Briars and was "an ouchy affair". It was difficult to clear the stones for photography.

This cemetery is a contrast in the nature of humans. Notice while looking at photo #2442 someone laid a floral reef at the foot of a tombstone. In the next photo #2443 someone else discarded a beer bottle at the foot of a gravestone, or really, that was just where it came to rest. If we could get everyone into the first mindset and out of the second more primeval one the human race would be more civil. I suppose it is the least respectful latter class of folks I am constantly harping on in this web site, but then they are generally a hopeless bunch not reading anything here.
