We cling to the enduring strength of stone to fight the fear of being forgotten.
So please take a moment to remember:
John Wiand 1822-1904, Lydia Wiand 1830-1868, and their child, age 3 years 3 months and 5 days (mostly unreadable).
A quiet spot
For a family of three
They joined their child
In the shade of a tree.

**This post is the first in the Remembrance Series, where I will offer a moment of reflection to those whom time may have erased. The Cemetery Symbolism series will also be continuing.**
