More Cemeteries

The anguish and sorrow
The purity & Beauty
See all the people in one tomb!!
They just wind around and go on forever

Well, found 2 more cemeteries in Metairie, or rather found how to get to them after circling around for awhile. Also found a nice, nice neighborhood. Have to admit that was on the way to Venice, LA and could not find the turn off and after got turned back to where i knew where i was just decided to go to the cemeteries :)
I just find them fascinating. Such artistry and some are really BIG, 2-3 stories high. They just have anything on them, stained glass windows, crosses of course, saints, angels. Some were just memorilizing relatives too. One was all his relatives in Europe from the 1800's. Then i get fixated on the angels, such despair and yearning.
Take Care All and God Bless
