Comments: Difficult to get clear photos through the chain-link fence, and in the late afternoon as it was when we were there - next time we're in the area, we'll try and get morning shots in hopes that those will be a little clearer.

It is obvious that Gloria and her family put a lot of loving care into the maintenance of this family cemetery.  We're honored to have met her and her family at the Barr Family Reunion!
