It’s been a little while sine our cemetery featured in a “365 Project” image.
I have bee intrigued by this grave for a little while. It is slightly shorter than the usual some of a grave and the brightly coloured decorations, the flowers, scarecrow and windmill, lend it a jolly appearance. Well, as jolly as a grave can be. Especially when you think that it is likely to be child’s grave due to the size and the additions.
I feel this grave is particularly poignant when you read the single name marked into the broken concrete slab; “KYLE”. This grave leaves me asking an array of questions::
Who was Kyle?
How old was he when he died?
When and how did he die?
Who mourns him and cares enough to place a jolly sunflower scarecrow to keep silent watch over him?
