If you are interested in "White Bronze" or zinc monuments, I have published a book of photos of them in the Chicago area. You can check it out at www.zincmarkers.com
While researching our family tree, we browsed the old photo albums we found tons of pictures taken at the family cemeteries. My first "cemetery" photo was taken when I was about 1 month old at Glen Oak Cemetery in Hillside, IL. My grandfather had just passed away and we visited every week. I remember my mom telling the story that I was playing in my sandbox making little piles of sand. She asked what I was doing and I replied "Making graves!"
My oldest daughter kids around that I talk to dead people, thus the name "SixthSense".
In all honesty, I wanted to be a mortician but I married, divorced and raised two beautiful daughters instead.
Cemeteries have always fascinated me, and this is a great way to display some of the beautiful headstones as well as to remember those who left us, often much too soon. Inspired by "Tombstoner", I have begun adding burials of people that I have not know personally, but have found their monument unusual, their obituary interesting, and most important... I want them to be honored here. If I have added someone that you wanted to add, please let me know. I meant no offense and I will gladly remove my entry so that you can add it yourself.
