Rock of Ages: Grave Concerns

Alberta’s Angels — Favourite Cemetery Photograph

My wife, Donna and I were enjoying a summer/vacation drive through the province. 

When we located this cemetery, I went looking for a relative I had been told was buried there …

Innisfail Cemetery,

Innisfail, Alberta

I didn’t find him, but I did locate these little lambs made of limestone.  A lowing lamb was a common symbol used to signify the loss of a child.

The only down side of this picture: the inscriptions face the trees!
