Garfield Monument, Lakeview Cemetery, Cleveland

I wanted to share with you a postcard you normally don’t get every day: a scene from a cemetery. When visiting a cemetery, I look at the stones, monuments and mausoleums (the outside, of course), some of which are great examples of architecture and creativity. Which people are buried next to each other, or are conspicuously absent, tell silent stories. Birth and death dates, especially of young children, in family plots remind us that even the most successful families with the grandest plots and monuments have also experienced heartbreak.
