Me and "Rusty", my beloved 17 year old American Cocker Spaniel and our 1963 Nova SS we would go cruising together in. Rusty was my first true unconditional love and I had owned him since I was a teenager. Congestive heart failure finally took him from me on February 26, 2001. The photo was taken on December 13, 2000. He is now interred at the Greenbriar Pet Cemetery in Apopka, FL. He has a prime plot and the fanciest fully lined casket money could buy, but I couldn't decide on a monument worthy enough for such a wondferful friend and companion. The selection of headstones at the pet cemetery wasn't very good, so I began going to people cemeteries around the Central Florida area for ideas. The wide variety of shapes and sizes of headstones as well as, dates, titles, and final words set in the stone really caught my interest. There is a lot of history to be learned in a cemetery. The homeade concrete headstones in the smaller and more run down cemeteries were the most interesting of all. I finally decided on a large Missouri Red slant headstone for Rusty. My cemetery hunting continued though ended up becoming a hobby on the weekends. I started adding records for a remote and run down cemetery in NW orange County in FL. Check out burial records for Tangerine Cemetery, FL. Lots of interesting photos of homeade headstones and lots of veterans there too.
