I'm back in one of my favorite local cemeteries again this week. The cool dark shadyness of Clark Cemetery make it a wonderful place to visit on hot summer days. Ah, not that is a consideration as a sever winter storm is preparing to blow down on us at I type. But still, in summer a great place to visit.
I was struck by the carvings on the stones in some of the photos we have of Clark cemetery.
But the ones that caught my eye while browsing through the pictures were the stones for children and young adults.
This next stone is also a double stone. Our Little Lambs is the inscription around the inside of the crest, followed by Joseph and (another name) Stevens. Sandy and I both studied that name. We cannot make it out at all, _____ie is all we can make of it, no matter how we zoom out and in. But the two lambs on top of the stone, with the "Our Little Lambs" is so touching a memorial to the Stevens children.
Stones like these make me wish to know the stories behind the stones, so they will be remembered as more than just a marker.
