Taphophile Tragics

Many long years ago
Very small Florence Weeks died
Much too young...so sad!

It's sobering to come upon the gravestone of a small child.  115 years ago this month this child died, and I cannot help but wonder what was the cause of her death.  A tragedy for her parents.

  1. It is indeed sad, tragic, whenever a young child passes away.

    I hope you are enjoying your trip to Cuba. The National Geographic that came out today has a cover story on Cuba.

  2. So sad but so common at the time. I'm sure that, common or not, her parents grieved just as much.

  3. Sad in any era. Still sad 115 years later.
