What's In a Gravestone?

This post over at A Grave Interest made me think about the messages sent to us by gravestones about the people who are buried there.  An epitaph says a lot but sometimes the stone itself tells a story!

This photo to the right is one of my favorites!  I love the stone and I love the letters!  I cannot help but think Ms. Carter Galt must have been a very fun-loving lady!  Seeing this stone make me wish I knew her! 

It's a rock. I'm serious -- it's a rock!  I figured you might not believe me so I made sure to include the rear view below. 

This post was actually started on December 2, 2011 but I owe this family so much more research and text about them.  I will do that in another post but for now, since I fell in love with this stone when I saw it, I just have to share it.

In addition, sharing this photo with everyone is part of my attempt to assist with the kick-start and recovery of the Graveyard Rabbits Carnival, I am including it before I am satisfied with text.  I am very satisfied with my other Carnival participants -- you have GOT to check it out!

There are many more photos to be taken around O'ahu -- and the State if I ever leave my island, but for now my photos are limited compared to those of my graveyard hopping friends.  As of right now, I must admit that this is my favorite photo because there are few, if any, like it.


  1. Well, you're right....she must have been a fun loving Sometimes simple is best. Thank you for turning the gears of the meme. I have enjoyed participating again.

  2. Hi Linda! Thank you for visiting and for your comment. I really enjoyed all of the Carnival posts and I need to get back to each and every one and leave a comment. Shame on me for not being quicker to set a good example! Tsk! Thank you for both the visit and for joining in the Carnival! :)

  3. Wish I had joined in time to participate. It looked like a lot of fun. I run a group home and we are going to do this as an activity, anyway. They were looking forward to it.
