It's So Hard To Say Good-Bye

Uploaded: July 15, 2010


This grave marker, had a powerful effect on me when I saw it. A young husband taken far too soon, from his wife. The inscription, difficult to see, reads: Here Lies My Beloved Husband. Seeing this marker, made my heart break for her all those years ago, as her grief must have been all encompassing. I used Virtual Photograher filter. Shot at St. Lucy's Cemetery Mahoningtown, Pa
