Two modest headstones resting among many more ornate.. I noticed them last summer on a walk through a cemetery in the area.. probably high winds took this one down. Something about these headstones made me pause, more than most.. I don`t know who they were, the names aren`t clear anymore.. but it was obvious that the crosses were handcrafted with love..

In tribute to my brothers Clive and Bruce who both passed on March 24.. fourteen years apart.

    This brings to mind the 'Potter's Field' in a nearby cemetery during my growing up years. I couldn't look at it and I couldn't look away. It broke my heart. Still does. I love your tribute and am truly sorry for your great lose.
