This headstone is from a cemetery a short walk from my house. The oldest graves, such the subject of my entry, date from the late 19th Century. There's even the grave of one of the former owners of the land of which Squirrelhaven was once a part.
It's a charming little cemetery, but easily missed by busy commuters passing it by every day. November is the month of remembrance, with All Souls' Day and Veterans' Day. It's a time to reflect on the transient nature of life, and to give thanks for the wonderful people in it and the joys we so often take for granted.
