What an awesome week. My precious son is home from Afghanistan. I am posting photos over on his blog http://www.dearclayton.blogspot.com/
On the way home I made a quick stop at Cottonwood to see if I could find more family headstones for Russ. I didn't find any on my quick walk in the rain. I wanted to check the graves surrounding his GG GF since my initial photographs were randomly taken as I walked through the old section.
Thank goodness this is not a close-up photo. After the long wait and sleepless nights and celebration of Clayton's return I traveled home a little frumpy looking with my hair pulled back and no make-up. I was exhausted.
I had my husband roll the stone over on the one that has fallen so I could check out the name. A couple of Benson's are buried to the left of his grave, shown in the foreground.
I hope to be back posting next week after I catch my breath!
