Ramblings From a Born in the Fifties' Nana
Beautiful images with the morning sun.
It's nice that you are setting such a wonderful example for them.I think these younger generations are losing some of the respect for the older generations.... seems that they can't be bothered.I hope that one day, my grand (if I ever get any..LOL) will do the same for me :)Warm wishes...Kerin
I went with my mother and she would tell me about the people she remembered, guess that is why I like to go to old cemetery's and look for family members. Now so many in my family are choosing cremation.
The light and the flowers are lovely - very special photos. I find old cemetery's very peaceful too but like Patsy my family's tradition is for cremation so I have no graves to visit.
What a lovely tradition.I was happy to learn that my daughter and her fiance visited the family gravesite when they were on the mainland recently - I'd never have expected that they'd remember.
You can still have a headstone even if you choose cremation..and a small amount of your ashes can be buried. We will visit some of the graves just prior to Memorial Day..and then again a week later to rescue the flowers so the people that mow the cemeteries don't have to trim around them the rest of the summer:)
Decoration is such an important southern tradition. I want my grandson to learn about it too. It's important to remember.
