It’s been a while since I’ve posted any unusual gravestones, but as some you know, exploring old cemeteries is one of my favorite things to do. I grew up in Buffalo, NY, where there is a famous cemetery called Forest Lawn. My sister Bernadine and I spent afternoons exploring it, especially the section we dubbed “Mausoleum Row.”
Enjoy the following photographs.

Can’t remember where this gravestone is but it is so unique, with the child “penetrating the thin veil” between this life and the next.
