Martin Cemetery

today Katie & I pulled into the cemetery on the way home so I could take a picture of the stone my great grandparents purchased. My great grandfather Johnnie was originally buried here, but after Great Grandma Daisy moved to California, she had Grandpa moved out there. They gave the plot to my parents, but they have opted for cremation. This is a quiet little cemetery right off Highway 65, up on the hill. We had a picnic while we were there with our McDonalds takeout, I shared with Katie how I think I read how people in the old days would have a picnic in the cemetery on Decoration Day, then decorate their graves.
