Baby Head Cemetery

I came across these interesting pages from I was taken there by a tweet I got today in reference to Baby Head cemetery. Naturally, that piqued my interest, so off on a million link tangent I went... It's sort of a sad reminder of the hatred that's been part of our nation's history. With the sadness of Nine Eleven so fresh in our hearts, it behooves us to remember all those who have died and fought for America. I realize that Native Americans have suffered much by the westward expansion of Greco-Roman Civilization, but there have been many innocent caucasions who have suffered as well. Adam's Curse is most excruciatingly poignant when children are caught in it's execution.

It's places like these that I love the most; so serene & majestic. I've said before & I'll say it again, anyone who claims to believe in the Resurrection needs to be paying better attention to the cemeteries. For it is there that the "dead in Christ" shall rise first. It's there that we should be keeping a watchful eye and investing more of our time, efforts & resources to proper cemetery upkeep! Believers who walk away from the cemetery without a second care clearly indicate to the World that they don't understand the slightest bit of the Resurrection we hold so dear. It's truly the most tragic example of the unbelieving Church.

How very tender...

from back in the good old days when you could plant flowers at a graveside without getting hassled by the cemetery maintenance crew. I've come to loathe where my girls are buried more than words can express!

Calvary Cemetery, a Roman Catholic cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio, contained 13 acres of ground. It was opened in 1865 by the Catholic Calvary Cemetery Association, consisting of members of St. Francis De Sales Church. The first burial was that of an infant, Catherina Hoffstedde, in 1865.

Abigail's Bunny

Abigail's Bunny, originally uploaded by 2QTsInHeaven.

My baby girl has her very own graveyard rabbit. He's a cute little guy that we catch sitting on her headstone quite frequently. Sadly, they made us remove the gorgeous guara butterfly plant. I hate having my children in the cemetery. I've grown weary of groundskeepers who don't care and cemetery owners that are merely out to make money. The cemetery where our girls are buried boasts about how they give burial plots for children under two for free. What they don't tell you is that the baby plots are in an area that's rather like the welfare section--no proper weeding; no proper tree maintence. One family put in three lovely willows and the groundskeepers killed all but one. Then in an effort to save the remaining tree, the family installed a memorial stone around it to keep the groundskeepers from chopping the crap out of the tree base. There were some lovely bushes along the wall that near the street, but they chopped all those down leaving the unsightly stumps. Weeds grow there and they never take any of them out like they do in the paid areas. It's sad that we parents come along and try to tidy the place up and make it nice, only to be told not to. Yes, their plots may be free for the babies, but we pay in so many other ways.

My sweet BabyGail has her very own graveyard rabbit. I captured a bunch of pix of him nestling behind her vase on her headstone, but they're difficult to see cuz Mr. Bunny was very good at hiding. I didn't think posting his little feet and the tips of his ears would make for a good foto. Unfortunately, when I moved to get a better foto of him, he moved too, and this is as good as I could get of his sweetness ♥

this one's especially heart-wrenching... I always wonder did they die of illness or accident. Children fell victim to both so easily, and in one fell swoop a mother could find herself putting several of her children into a communal tomb such as this.

notice the keys on the left hand side of the foto to give indication of how dainty sweet Cosetta's stone is. This is apparently in Willis Cemetery in southern Oklahoma--dust bowl territory then, and even now. Of course September 11th will never be the same for our generation, but clearly every generation has it's hardships...
