Brokenhearted Wife


We don't know who S.B. McC. was, but this simple tombstone in
 Confederate Circle at Old Live Oak Cemetery was erected
 by his broken-hearted wife. 

Thanks to guest photographer Kathy Prince for this photograph!

Very sad, but also kind of sweet --- it makes me wonder about these two people, and what they were like.
