Always and Forever

The death of a baby invokes extreme stress and loss in the lives of parents and family members.  The belief that families can be together forever helps assuage the pain.

Her Carved Headstone

Maud Mary Bathgate Logan Adams was so loved by her husband that  considerable stone working skills were used to carve her headstone.  The inscription is disappearing on the semi-hard 100 year old stone.  Like many other makers in the cemetery, it is being abused by city owned lawnmowers piloted by teenage boys.  The design is unique and the sentiment of a loving husband has been on display for generations of descendants and visitors to the cemetery.
