Civil Bend Cemetery, Winston, Oregon

The carving on this one's particularly interesting.

"She hath done what she could." Good epitaph.

I have to wonder if he was named for the other one, Cecil Rhodes?
They really did a good job with this.

These people seem to have a fetish for lists, and that's meant as a compliment. I wish more cemeteries did this sort of thing.

If he was an "unbelievably wonderful husband, dad, and grandpa" he had nothing to be forgiven for. Then again, no one ever said Evangelical Protestantism was capable of rational thought.

Just Bloody Awful

This sort of thing is an ongoing problem with most forms of Protestantism. The Lutherans and Anglicans have produced good architecture, decent paintings, and truly great music. The Methodists have managed decent hymns. The rest of Protestantism is an artistic wasteland.

What A Way To Go

Just look. You wouldn't believe it if I told you.
