C'est curieux de trouver cette plaque sur ce vieux camion.
Ginnie Hart: Part of the cemetery care, I assume, ready to place it where it belongs?

While walking a cemetery, you do realize seize the day and live like it is your last day and count your blessings at the end of the day.
This lady died too young in my eyes and I hope she 'rests in peace'.
(However I think when the gates close at night they have their own party)
Great shot and love the processing.
Ginnie Hart: Now THAT would make for a good movie, MLMA! See what happens at night in the cemetery when all the "lost souls" come alive! smile
That's a curious way to deliver a tombstone.
Ginnie Hart: I guess someone has to do it, Michael. smile
She died so young Ginnie!
Very nice post treatment.
Ginnie Hart: Yes, Richard...she was young. Thanks for the comment.

A life we never knew. I wonder what it was like Ginnie?
Ginnie Hart: I know, Chris. She was younger than both of my children (1972 and 1975).

a moving sign on that vehicle -what a young life - I would like to know more about Johanna.
Ginnie Hart: It's one of those moments when you stop and take pause, Philine...indeed!
That looks so sad Ginnie, a life cut down at the age of 39.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Chad. Younger than my two children!
jolie ce traitement "à  l'ancienne"! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
That truck looks very well used. Johanna died way to young.
Ginnie Hart: That truck surely gets around that cemetery, Mary, with its over 16,000 graves. And yes, she was younger than my two kids by a year.
Only 38 years old, how sad.
Ginnie Hart: Sad, indeed, Brian.
A mobile grave is a new concept Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: The cemetery is full of them, Bill. Whole families are together with extra room to add more and reorganize the placement. Quite interesting. You can see it here: http://ginniehart.blogspot.nl/2016/05/malta-addolorata-cemetery.html

I hope the few years she had were happy and filled with love.
Ginnie Hart: So do I, Pauline. What a happy thought.
PRESUMABLY ABOUT TO BE SET UP SOMEWHERE.
Ginnie Hart: Most of the grave stones we saw were like this one, Tom...movable. When they're set up on a plot, it's usually along with many other members of the family, which all get moved around as new stones are added.
Poor Johanna...
It's so sad to see that, hope you didn't see many baby tombstones there either.
Ginnie Hart: We saw one baby stone...3 weeks old at death. So very sad, indeed.
Again, very nice processing. Johanna gets to live on a little in your post.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you for that thought, Michael. Since she died in October of 2015 and we saw this scene in April of 2016, I wondered if it took that long before the stone was made?

Only one gravestone to be seen - and she was still young (at least from our viewpoint). I vote this picture to be the most different cemetery shot I have seen, to date.
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Louis. When you add to it that she died in October of 2015 and this image was taken in April of 2016, one wonders if it really takes that long for a grave stone to be made there?!

Fallait la voir
JP
Ginnie Hart: It was definitely worth a second look, JP.
a timely reminder. and yes, we could all use your advice, Ginnie. i do not understand though, is the headstone being delivered only now?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush...and good question. She died in October 2015 and this scene is from April 2016. Did it take that long for the headstone to be made???
What a great statement! So true! Wonderful capture too.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you and thank you, dear Robin.
A little surrealistic...
Ginnie Hart: I know!

Ginnie Hart: You'd love it, Cherry!!!
