Lancaster, Minnestoa

L is for Larter:  A bell: it seems like a natural fit for graveyards. Bells are used in life to mark and memorialize beginnings and endings. But, they are rare in cemeteries, even though their purpose is memorialization. Maybe bell ringing contradicts the quietness that is supposed to set the tone for grieving. The best thing about this bell is that it can be rung, perhaps at night while someone is explaining how the term "graveyard shift" came into use. Riverview Memorial Gardens. [2012]
