Salem Cemetery

 
*****
In Salem, AL on Hwy 431/280 West. 
*****
Some of the headstones read: 
*
The maid isn't dead, but sleepeth
**
God's finger touched him and he slept
***
Sleep on darling little jewel, In thy lonely bed of rest, Where sorrow cannot reach thee, Or trouble molest
****

I am determined when i die to have an old-fashioned tombstone... complete with saying skull and cross bones and all.

Old cemeteries have some of the most wonderful headstones and words.

I agree with Birdman, some of the old one have beautiful wording on them.

Hmmm...saw the post, thought immediately of Salem, Massachusetts...spooky, eeirie.

Nah, I like cemeteries. They are great fun to browse through and read the inscriptions.
