A Walk in the Cemetery

There is no single site in the community that tells its story with more drama than the cemetery. It is the one place where we can trace our ‘roots’ in what is becoming a ‘rootless’ society. There are pioneers, the rich and famous lying side by side with the poor and not so famous. There are scoundrels and saints, infants and centenarians. Each gravestone has a story to tell. Traveling from Alaska to Key West, from Hawaii to Canada, from New Zealand to England we have found examples of the myriad of burial customs and examples of symbolism on gravestones. Instructor Rochelle Balkam wishes to encourage communities to focus on one of their most significant resources - the local cemetery.
