Two favorite pastimes on this site? Linking and Flowers.
(1) I never tire of searching for a known parent of a memorial and linking them! Why? Every one came from someone - no one just dropped out of the sky! Although, I admit, sometimes it feels that way!
(2) Flowers! as you can see I enjoy leaving them. Finding a Flower on a site is a joy! Please consider leaving one!

Two of my favorite "olden time" inscriptions-

Brother Thou art gone to rest.
Thy toils and cares are o'er.
And sorrow pain and suffering now.
Shall ne'er distress thee more.

O sacred source of everlasting light,
Conduct the weary wanderer in her flight,
Direct her onward to that peaceful shore,
Where peril, pain, and death are felt no more.

If you are new, please, take time to read the FAQs. They will help you succeed on this site. I have found that "Please" and "Thank you" go a long way.
