This wasn’t the most well-kept cemetery I’ve seen. A guy was mowing while I was there, and it looked like a cut hay field behind his mower. I wonder if they’ve ever heard of weed trimmers? The grass was so high around all of the headstones. Perhaps they are on a monthly mowing schedule.

I love finding literary references in cemeteries. Do you know on whose famous headstone that inscription appears?
