Yes, two random thoughts in the same day…. be very afraid lol.
This is not so much a random thought as it is a random announcement though… Mom and I just got back from a walk through the cemetery.
It’s really nice outside (although it is so frazzling windy it’ll blow your doors off) so we decided to go for a walk- and the best place around here is the cemetery. Now before you get all creeped out, it’s perfectly normal. If you lived one house away from one, you’d jog an walk and ride bike and walk the dog and all that in it too. It’s lots of roads that go all different ways and no cars to worry about. It’s perfect.
Anyway, we read a bunch of headstones. Again, that’s an interesting town history lesson…. not creepy… and we found one that was actually kind of sad. “Sad” things usually don’t make me sad, I admit I’m just a but callous sometimes I guess, and this didn’t really depress me but I can acknowledge that it’s sad.
There was a big tower like one with the name of the husband and wife- they were born in the 1800s and died in the 1800s, can’t remember the years. They lived normal long lives.
Up and down the other three sides, were names and dates of other people. Over 10 that we could make out, and by the dates, we found that all their children- over ten- died. The oldest one was 38, and was an M.D. There was another in their early 30s. But all of them died young, some were a few months old, some were a few years old, most were teenagers. And no explanation. Just the dates.
