    Hi Melody!

    Thanks for stopping by!

    It is a very nice stone, I’m not sure about the flower, though. I just found it this evening at FindAGrave. City Cemetery in Hillsboro is a wonderful example of a well-tended, small town cemetery and has some very old stones. Several years ago I found a previously unknown infant ancestor there, totally by accident, while searching for another ancestor. It made my day!
