broken headstone

This is another picture i took on Memorial Day. I was impressed that even though the headstone was broke that someone put it up like that. Too often the old headstones get treated badly as no one is alive who knew the person or family and the older ones are easily fractured. One of the things i notice are the changing styles of headstones from decade to decade, although more noticeable by century. New ones now have pictures of the people along with the names and dates, sometimes etched pictures of the hobby of the person.
