Cincinnati, Ohio

C is for Cafferata:  There is one stand-out grave in St. Joseph's. It sets the emotional tone for the entire cemetery. Somebody is in mourning. It does not seem as if she is contemplating the joy of everlasting life, but rather the emotional loss that is felt on earth. Here's someone of Italian heritage whose family knows how to incorporate Mediterranean emotions and the flowing lines of classic Greek and Roman sculpture into a memorial. St. Joseph New Cemetery.
