Memorial Day

Had lunch out and then went to my family's graves. 

Later we went to Husband's family's cemetery. It was a nice day.

The Children's Blizzard (see book by same name) headstone we always visit. Husband's great grandfather found these two boys dead in a haystack after the blizzard.

Lots of children's graves in this old cemetery.

One of our extended family plots had six of these headstones for children in a row. Four of them were infants. The infant mortality rate was sobering.

We also visited the grave of our family friend  who passed away last year.
