Hi, I am a new member and just had to tell you - I went to your
website www.graveyards.com. All I can say is WOW!!!!! i am
fascinated by cemeteries, history and funeral art and finding your
site is a dream come true for me. I love the fact that you have
included detailed information with each photo. Most sites just
include a photo and no history or additional information. I look
forward to going through each every cemetery!!! Thanks!
