1912 Was Different

The Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge: Broken
There are groups that clean and repair aged and damaged tombstones. Nobody
is going to fix this one. That is sad, but I think it’s told it’s story. Most stories
come to an end and they stay that way.

This tomb had nobody left to care for it, so it’s falling to dust bit by bit.  Relationships

are like that, aren’t they?

This gravestone isn’t broken like the ones above.

Baby Boy Floyd was born in 1912 and he died on the same day.

What broke on that day in December back in 1912 isn’t buried here- things like that are never

really able to be laid to rest. They live on and haunt us.
