Tombstone Tuesday - 11/18/08

This is one of many benches I found on my Chicago cemetery trip back in October.

Luetgert, Elm Lawn Cemetery

What a great bench! I wonder if it is supposed to depict ELM tree stumps?!

JULIE, I love graveyard benches. Sometimes on the bench is written the names of the deceased and the bench serves as a grave marker. Other times the bench has only a surname on it --- or, in the case of the one I sat on at Pearce Chapel Cemetery in Mississippi the other day, no name, just a lovely design of angels.

Thanks for sharing this photograph.
