Our oldest cemetery had wonderful paintbrush and sego lilies -- until a Tidy Lady showed up in town, with a mission to Save the Cemetery.

I love the hands on this one, of course. Very interesting symbol.

Nice gravestone shot, Lori! I've seen several of those "clasping hands" stones here in the Hannibal area.
