Ohhhh. *sniff*
I don't know how the parents could bear to see it.
Very poignant.
Yes, it is. :(
Oh my, that sounds very sad. :o(
Poor wee mite. :(
How lovely and sad.
I've been wondering if it was a standard children's grave marker or a one-off. I haven't seen anything quite like it elsewhere.
How sad - but what a fascinating memorial.
It's very sad. I had a look in the archive for a death record but couldn't find one although there's a baptismal record for a DB Campbell from 1910. If it's the same DB, he was 27 months when he died. So I guess I'll never know what happened to him.
Very unusual marker. Are those little shoes in the chair? I wonder if it is symbolic of anything.
He doesn't need his shoes in heaven. :)
Oh, this one is so kewl. I love cemetery monuments and headstones.
