Recently I took a trip up to Savannah. Not spooky, but a beautiful Savannah GA Cemetery that I think you’ll very much enjoy. If you do nothing but glance quickly at this post, I invite you to at least read the epitaph below. I have written out the text as the stone is worn and a bit hard to read in the photo.
It has become a common practice that no only the Jewish, but all faiths leave a stone on graves when they visit them.
Ann Marion Houstoun’s grave, 1778-1817
“Fair Stranger whose feet have wandered to this land of silence…
Contemplate this stone.
Near it is interred dust which once a lovely form inhabited by a mind, superior in intelligence, worth and amiableness to most of her sex. As a daughter, sister and friend, as a wife and mother, few whom she left behind can boast so bright an example.”
“The religion of the cross she understood with uncommon discernment and regarded it in her life with humility and with reverence. On her death bed she found its consolation with delightful peace and hope, and at the close of a distressing disease fell into a sweet sleep and left the world without a struggle. Fair stranger, mayest thou live and die in the same manner.”
