graveyards, gravestones, photography and family
Burlington, Halton Co, Ontario, CANADA
This stone is the burial location of my maternal grandmother’s parents — or my great-grandparents. The picture was taken 17JUL2003.
I did not take a BEFORE picture (I should have), as the stone was (and probably is again) just under ground level, with grasses and moss growing over it. A faint dirt ring still circles the stone face and the lettering at the edges are also filled with dirt.
The stone itself is a grey granite and has weathered the elements well, except for the grass overgrowth. I hope to visit my family again in the next year or two, acquire some gardening tools from my sister-in-law and (possibly) re-set the stone. If not, I’ll trowel a two inch border around the stone and fill it with white fish gravel — that should slow things down.
