Cemetery Visits

When we are back in the US Ben and I feel that we should go by to visit the graves of our parents and others.  We used to make some of these visits on Fathers’ Day each year.  But now we just make them when we are nearby.

This is cemetery in Louisville is where one of my uncles is buried.  My friend Allan tells me that nearby a Muslim cemetery is going to be constructed.  The first in the area.

This is the Old State Cemetery in Frankfort, KY.  Where my grandmother and many on her side of the family are buried.  These folks were from this part of Kentucky rather than Louisville.

This is Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville.  A big one.  A number of famous folk are buried here in addition to a few of my relatives and friends.   Don’t really know who this showman is but his stone is below.

This one, we just happened upon.  It is at the ferry terminal for the Lewes, Delaware and Cape May NJ ferry. 

 

The weather and the fact that I have no idea where my grandparents are buried in New Jersey kept me from paying my respects to them.  Which is pretty bad since I am able to live  in Italy because of them. 

 

So enough on this foggy, dreary day here in Tuscany.
