So on Memorial Day, my husband took a picture of this stone, thinking he was taking a picture of the marker of a veteran.
As it turned out, not so much, actually.
If you look carefully, this person’s name was Ida, and she died at the age of five weeks. Her heartbroken parents have had engraved on her marker (admittedly in German): “Her life was a moment, a spring dream, an earthly happiness.”
I don’t begrudge her the flag.
