A couple of years ago while searching out some kin folk in a small cemetery, I found this stone.
This has got to be one of the busiest stone I have seen in a very long time when it comes to symbols.
While most stone have one or two carved on them this one seems to have about 5 different symbols. Besides the willow trees, you have the person in her grave, rising up to heaven, angels greeting her and an urn.
In this same grave yard was a stone that was so well carved (Jesus beckoning to a child) that it seemed almost lifelike (the carvings were raised). While the lettering on the same stone was so poorly planned that the last name was split between two lines.
