Favorite Cemetery Photo

The July 1, 2009 posting from The Association of Graveyard Rabbits blog challenges the Graveyard Rabbits to choose their favorite cemetery-related photo. My favorite cemetery photo is the picture of the female sculpture which honors the memory of the daughters of Vincent Kerber, as discussed in an earlier blog post.

The pensive lady symbolizes to me a mother figure in Heaven, looking down, and thinking, "Now what are those kids up to today?" Certainly at the time this sculpture was placed in the St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Sandusky, Ohio, computers had not yet been created, and no one had any idea as to what the word blog may mean. Finding the stories associated with the individuals buried in cemeteries around the Sandusky Bay area has been such a joy, and I would like to think this stone lady would be pleased.

She has certainly struck a thoughtful pose. It makes you wonder what she is thinking. Perhaps you have guessed correctly.
