Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah Georgia: Part FIVE
This is the last of my series on the beautiful headstones and nature park
If you ever get the chance to go there, I recommend it.
It is a nature walk, an art museum
and a place to reflect on life and death.
It is especially poignant to me as I write this blogpost today
because I lost two friends to death, very unexpectantly a few weeks ago.
One was a man who I worked with for years and he died of an unexpected massive heart attack
when visiting downstate to pack up his daughter and her belongings from college..he was only 58.
One was my 63 yr. old girlfriend who was very, very active in organizing art shows
in our area, and she possessed a spirit that cannot be squelched...she died of a totally unexpected
massive aneurysm. She was cremated, but if I could, I would get her a headstone like one of these beautiful ones I have shown you in these past posts.
Treasure life..it is so precious.
Treasure friends and family..they are irreplaceable.
Quite the monument:
This ENORMOUS archway/headstone sat right on the river waters!:
The carved detail in it was undescribable!:
Jesus statue on the arch:
Amongst all the grandeur and huge, decorated headstones
was this simple grave:
And this HEARTBREAKING one, the loss of TWO babies:
A sad, sad angel:
I loved, loved the Spanish moss growing on
Many family plots had ornate, wonderful gates and fences around them:
Like the gates into heaven!
