A crowned sphere

Most of the individual grave markers in the Paul family plot at Fancher Cemetery are simple, flat granite markers. One stands out.

The gravestone for young Freddie Paul (b. 1886, d. 1899) is a sphere crowned with a wreath of flowers. Look closely and you see that the wreath encircles the child’s name— just Freddie.

Gone from our home, but not from our hearts.

  1. Beautiful, I've never seen a decorated sphere before, just plain ones.......

  2. I've never seen one before either--until this one. But it seems so obvious, doesn't it? Wonder why there aren't more....
