As you may already know, I visit a lot of cemeteries and I read a lot of grave markers.
I try not to make assumptions about the deceased based on the information on their headstones.
For example, sometimes the memorial lists more than one person.
I never assume a relationship between the people listed unless the marker clearly states “husband” and “wife” or “father” and “son”.
But sometimes everyone listed was born so long ago I can’t help but assume they couldn’t possibly still be living.
And when just one person is missing a date of death I can’t help but wonder, were they the last person in their family to die?
