We were both so busy over Memorial Day weekend at different cemeteries and with our families that we did not have time to finish our research for the planned episode this week. However, we have a very special return guest with a fascinating story joining us next week and we will be able to return to our regularly scheduled program! We humbly apologize and we thank you for sticking with us on all of our Ordinary Extraordinary Cemetery journeys. Until we meet again!

Episode 40 - Exploring the Wit and Wisdom of Epitaphs

Jennie and Dianne wander through graveyards across the United States and even the world exploring the wit and wisdom of epitaphs. Some are sweet and poignant, some are comical, and some tell the tragic tales of those buried beneath the headstones. Come along on another journey through many Ordinary Extraordinary Cemeteries and their poetry.
