Albuquerque, New Mexico

Cause of Death ~ Murdered:  Cemeteries are more about life than death. In fact, any reference to death is rare. Rather, tombstones almost always honor the life lived or project what life will be like on the other side. Here is the exception, however. Here lies a 41-year-old husband who was murdered, his widow wailing: "Oh call my husband back to me." Graphologists would recognize the down-slant of the cry as a sign of depression and, perhaps, suicidal tendencies. Note also the marriage knot, which is neither broken nor drawn tight. Mount Calvary Cemetery. [2013]
