Today I enclose a photo of my favorite cemetary plot(s). Part of my family rests there. It is a really pretty place with a beautiful cedar shade tree that my grandfather planted there. He sure did love his cedar trees. I remember playing underneath them as a child, on the farm. I pretended they were indian teepees and I was a great indian scout. They sheltered me rom the rain and the hot summer sun.
So I give you Henry Carl--PETE--Skinner, Sr. (my papaw) and his cedar shaded resting place. I still miss him!
The rocks that are used around the lot are local rocks that are mortared together for a border.
