Its a simple idea.
Go to the 8th folder where you keep your photos & in that folder chose the 8th photo.
Describe what the photo is about.
The above photo was taken in March of this year whan we had an unexpected gloriously sunny day & I decided to walk to my sons school the long way round via the local church. As always I wandered through the churchyard reading some of the gravestones. I love churches but the people who were buried in the churchyards need to be remembered whether they died this year or 200 years ago. Maybe its because I have traced a lot of family history that I feel this affinity with those who have passed on.
Told you it was a sombre post didn't I!!
Anyway back to the photo. The names on this particular gravestone always moves me as there are 5 children from one family. It reads
In loving memory of
Emma Selina died July 12 1920 aged 14 months
Victoria Maria died July 15 1925 aged 7 weeks
Ronald Noah died Oct 29 1926 aged 19 days
Mabel Sarah died Aug 4 1929 aged 2 years
Harry Edward died May 20 1930 aged 8 years
The children of John & Victoria Stephens
I don't know about you but reading these names & their age at death makes me so sad for their poor parents. But also glad for my beautiful son.
