Inspired by the good work of the volunteer Cemeterians led by Rex Melius, I’ve been cleaning up some stones in Sunnyside Cemetery (where much of the Struck family is interred). I don’t necessarily choose relatives, but moreso stones that have become illegible, paying particular attention to stones of veterans and lost children.
The verse on this particular stone touched me deeply.
Tis a little grave but O have care
For world wide hopes are buried there
How much of hope, how much of joy
Is buried with our darling boy.
