Grave Marker

Grave Marker, originally uploaded by Honduras Sprout.

In the "Gringo Graveyard" there is about 7 grave sites all in a single row marked with metal crosses. The top diamond plate has the birth year engraved and the below diamond plate has the year of death. The names were worked in with metal lettering. Some of the letters were missing making the names unknown.

I wasn't sure just how to go about taking photos of the grave sites. I'm not sure what is considered disrespectful to the dead. We know, at least, that they are not forgotten and still remembered for what they brought to San Juancito. Rest in peace.

Awesome photo. I need to remember to take some photos of the cemetaries in New Orleans when I go back in July. Who knows when the next killer hurricane takes away the graves just like it took away the people and the houses.
