I'm kind of fascinated by cemeteries. They're interesting places. Maybe because they represent the unknown. There are different beliefs about what happens to you when you die. I believe that the soul moves on to another place, depending on where you put your faith while you're alive. So what remains in the grave is really just the "shell" of the person who inhabited that body. The life is gone. But cemeteries give us a connection to those who have passed away. We can visit their graves and remember their lives. . .the only visible evidence being a tombstone, or some kind of marker, to let us know who's buried there. On this Memorial Day, we can reflect on family, friends or even enemies who have left this life forever. Gone but not forgotten.
