Soldier’s Headstone

Published March 31, 2013 by LS Murphy

Cemeteries hold a wealth of inspiration. They aren’t creepy. They aren’t scary. For me, cemeteries are storytellers. Each headstone tells you a bit about the person underneath, but it’s up to you to fill in the details.
The headstone I saw today speaks volumes.

Yes, he died in action during World War I. His family honored him with this amazing sculpture. He was loved and is missed. Isn’t that what we all want?
What stories do you see in a cemetery?
