Forgotten Souls (Who were these people)?
I came across this Cemetery in Goldfield Nevada when I was headed north to Mammoth Lakes & Yosemite in California.
Death is really something that has never bothered me very much, and I am a person that can handle it very well. Our life on Earth is very short, like the twinkling of a eye. And when we die we are remembered at that moment and a short time by others that love us. As the years pass by we are forgotten more and more.
As I walked around looking at the tombstones over 50% of them had no names or information who these people were. Because many of these sites were so old, the weather and lack of upkeep had taken away their names, etc. (Who were these people)?
This is just one of thousands of Cemeteries across the United States and around the world. And I will bet that many, many, peoples names have disappeared from their tombstones and grave sites. Some may say "their dead what difference does it make?" If these people are dead and it makes no difference then why even put their names and other information on the tombstones?
When I pass away I will be cremated and my ashes will be spread on the beaches of California, around some huge Redwood trees in California and the rest around the temples in Bagan Myanmar (Burma) South East Asia.
Friends and family may have forgotten these people, but (God) sure hasn't!
