Blanding, Utah

P is for Palmer:  Both they and their ancestors traveled widely. How can you conclude that from a headstone? First, by looking at the name, Palmer. It comes from the French for "palm bearer," and signified one who had made the pilgrimage to the Holy Land and returned with a palm frond in hand. Second, by looking at the silhouetted edifice, a Mormon Temple. Young people in the LDS Church go on missionary assignments abroad, returning home enriched in spirit with a song in their hearts. What song was in the hearts of this couple? Blanding City Cemetery. [2013]
