Tombstone Tuesday–Halloween Edition

Halloween is less than a week away and today I am going to deviate from my usual Tombstone Tuesday post and instead show some tombstone art I have photographed over the years. I hope you enjoy the photos.

Some photos taken while we were in Boston, when our son Jeff ran the Boston Marathon in 2009:

    Very interesting and intricate tombstone art. I’ve never seen anything quite like the one from Union Cemetery in Greenville, OH. Thanks for sharing.
