Moody Monday--Heavenly

I could have gone with an easy picture for this meme, like a photo of ice cream but I was drawn back to my cemetery photos. It took me a while to find the one I wanted but then I found this photo of a poem written by a bereaved family and preserved in ceramic. Somehow in the context of a family grieving the loss of a twelve year old daughter, the poem is all the more touching in that it is poorly crafted.

Shirley darling--B&W

In case it is hard to read, the final stanza says:

Wait for us my sweet,
Some day, we will join you,
Rest in peace,
With the angels from above.

Here are pictures of the ceramic photo of the girl and of her headstone.
