greatest generation

Four funerals today and no weddings. Lyne lost his mother, Doug lost his father, Gladys lost her daughter in law and my dear neighbor, Mabel Marrs, is going to ground in Riverview Cemetery.
"Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in
the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies,
you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I
know of, babies ? 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.' "-- Kurt Vonnegut

Mabel Marrs and Jean Baltimore

I love that your pictures are insanely familiar to me. My father was buried here, though I've never gone back. You've inspired me more wth this one photo more than anything I've seen lately..thank you.
