As I strolled Resurrection Park, the largest Catholic cemetery in Vermont, I found this gorgeous red granite grave monument. You’ll see at the top is a mourning dove. Apropos, no?

Herbert T. Davis Memorial Garden: A Pet Cemetery
I stumbled upon this place and wanted to see it. I decided to film it because you deserved to see it, too. I wish there were flowers, but the trees were certainly lovely. June and Herb Davis built the first Humane Society of Chittenden County’s (HSCC) facility. They are considered the modern founders of thisContinue reading “Herbert T.

APPRECIATE SUCH GREAT ANSWERS!
As I walk a cemetery, I shall see an abbreviation on a headstone and wonder what it stands for. I am so thankful that so many of my viewers reach out and let us know the answers to my questions and musings. I truly your knowledge and willingness to share because it means a lot.
Strolling Resurrection Park #5
I opted to stroll another section, albeit smaller. ‘Twas cold, don’t ya know? I found a few veterans in that area. It’s especially an honor to discover their graves. Perhaps you agree…
Foster Reid Clement and Family’s Graves & Monument
“…From around 1910 the house was owned by Lillian and Foster Clement, a retired lawyer and banker. Soon after it was a[c]quired by the Clements, they hired local architect Frank L. Austin to design the Colonial Revival style porches and veranda that were added to the front, south side and rear of the house.

Lakeview Cemetery with a Crypt!
I decided to walk a section I had never visited before at Lakeview Cemetery in Burlington, Vermont. As I did so, I discovered a small crypt designed for two people to lie side-by-side. It appeared to be created from Barre granite, which is a light gray granite. Sturdy, solid, permanent and screams “forever”.
Fog Rolling Over Lake Champlain
“The recent cold weather was accompanied by interesting fog over the open water of our lakes. Fog is essentially a ground-hugging cloud, composed of tiny liquid water droplets. This particular fog, called a steam fog, forms when cold air drifts across relatively warm water. The lake water evaporates into the air above the lake surface.Continue reading “Fog Rolling Over Lake Champlain”
Old Glory Waving Over Military Graves
Once I saw those flags standing straight out due to the strong winds, I knew I had to film. I am always awed by flags standing at attention. And that’s especially true when flags are flying over military graves. These soldiers, Union soldiers, who fought during the American Civil War, deserve this respect.
Peonies Passing on By!
“…Often, peonies were planted at the head of graves in cemeteries, assuring there would always be flowers in memory should there be no one left to decorate them. Once planted, peonies were good for a hundred years or more… …Nothing could be easier to grow than a peony. They thrive on neglect once established. TheContinue reading “Peonies Passing on By!”
Children’s Graves Revisited at Lakeview Cemetery
When I filmed these children’s graves back in June 2021, several headstones were tipped forward. This made some of them unreadable. There were others that were leaning in other directions as well. In September 2022, people from the Howard Center and the Vermont Old Cemetery Association joined forces to straighten these headstones. I must sayContinue reading “Children’s Graves Revisited at Lakeview Cemetery”
