“In my explorations, I have come to appreciate the beauty of old graveyards. Older cemeteries have much more interesting monuments than modern cemeteries, which tend to be vast expanses of nearly identical flat granite markers. This uniformity came about shortly after World War I. Before then, the monuments were as varied as the individuals they commemorated.”
