A Time to Be Born, and a Time to Die: Chaves County has a DWI prevention program, and it includes an admonition from the Grim Reaper himself: Every 15 minutes (symbolized by a clock) there is a tragedy or death related to drinking, drinking and driving, or drugs. DWI should never determine anyone's time to die. "Is your life working risking?" South Park Cemetery.

A Time to Be Born, and a Time to Die: "To well loved to be forgotten." Presumably that means love is timeless. So why is there a clock on the memorial? Time of death? Indicator of his livelihood? "Self Winding Clock Company" is inscribed at the center: a clue to help us solve the puzzle, perhaps. Riverside Cemetery.

Mistakes Were Made: No, they weren't. The Misses just changed her mind and decided he had to do it her way. When he died, only the years of birth and death were put on the headstone. Someone, maybe the Misses or maybe the kids, decided that wasn't enough, so months and days were added. Forest Lawn Cemetery.

Mistakes Were Made: Just ask Mr.
Jorgenson Jorgensen. Even though both spellings mean "son of," the correct Danish and Norwegian version is Jorgensen (actually Jørgensen). Changing the last syllable to "son" almost deprives you of your heritage! Both names mean "son of George." Cortland Rural Cemetery.

'The Twelve' and Their Namesakes ~ All Saints: Be inclusive! That's the mantra of the decade. Why not honor all saints? Why not include both genders (maybe eventually all genders)? The woman is St. Therese of Lisieux. Can you identify the men? There is a clue in the inscription: "Go into the whole world and teach all nations." Think: all nations. All Saints Cemetery.
