I went to Jefferson Barracks Cemetery yesterday to check that my dad's marker was in place and correct.
Since this is one of my favorite places to spend quiet time I went exploring.

All shot with the D3 and 84/1.4

And the setting where he's placed
With space getting tight the cemetery has begun having seperate areas for cremated remains. The graves are much smaller and tightly spaced.

Very wonderful.
Thank you Don, this may seem weird but I find your post comforting after losing my father two weeks ago.
