Little Genesee, New York

Heaven as the Old Homestead:  These are the folks who begat the Baby Boom Generation, the high fertility epoch that followed World War II. To remind us how they also changed the landscape, they have chosen to memorialize their single-family detached home. It must have been at the center of their lives. Why else would it be at the center of their headstone? And, why else would the lawn surrounding their house match the lawn surrounding their grave? Wells Cemetery. [2013]
