This is a departure from my usual dedication to Maiden Aunts and Bachelor Uncles, but i found this while I was organizing yesterday. James Calvin Donald, was my great great grandfather.
I laid flowers at his grave when my father died (June 2010) and when my aunt died (Oct 2010). Many ancestors are in the Stonewall Jackson Memorial Cemetery. When I was at their funerals I was struck by the fact that many of my immediate family and ancestors and stood in that cemetery and cried tears as we said goodbye to love ones. It is a ribbon that weaves our family tapestry together.
