When I was up in Grayling this past weekend, my mother, grandmother and I stopped by a local cemetery.

It's peaceful, nestled back in the woods off a single lane seasonal dirt road. It doesn't look like anyone's been buried there for the better part of 100 years, but a few of the grave stones are still legible. I would guess the place is pretty full, but most of the graves seem to be marked by only a cement marker or an arrangement of stones embedded in the ground. I think my favorite is the hand carved, "Dear Mother At Rest" on a simple stone. Very moving.

Thanks for looking.
