    particularly interested me. The headstone read Friedrich August Wunsche, Geb July 20, 1837, Gest May 3, 1897. I decided on this tombstone because of its architecture and time period of the person it commemorated, it is the sole surviving piece for this man to be remembered by. A shrine of sorts to his life, this man lived in the union, probably fought for the confederacy and then died when the United States was once again united. I truly chose this particular headstone because it was different than

    at one of the Latin crosses and read, “Here rests in honored glory a comrade in arms known but to God.” Seeing the absence of a name on a headstone is distressing. I am reminded of all the names on the Wall of the Missing. One of those men may be buried here, but no one will ever know he is here. A crimson rose has been carefully leaned against the headstone, and I wish that I, too, had brought flowers to place by the graves of unknown soldiers. I wonder who has left the rose for him. I gently

    corner of Cypresswood and I-45, I began to sift into a cemetery that I had no true interest in, or so I thought. The cemetery was home to about twenty burial plots, each one a little different in its own way, but one particularly interested me. The headstone read Friedrich August Wunsche, Geb July 20, 1837, Gest May 3, 1897. I decided on this tombstone because of its architecture and time period of the person it commemorated; it is the sole surviving memory of this man. Etched into the bottom of the

    If there is one thing we know for sure is that no one can avoid death. The sensitivity of this issue has always been heavily influenced by religion, culture and economics, but little input from government. However with the dramatic increase from not only the aging of the baby boomer generation, in the near future there will be a higher demand for cemetery space and planners will have to step in to come up with resolutions and alternatives (Prothero, 2001). Historically in the United States, burial

    Ghost House Commentary

    • 715 Words
    • 2 Pages

    The poem “Ghost House” by Robert Frost is a work that highlights the speaker, and possibly the author’s feelings towards death. This is achieved through the use of an eerie mood via word choice, implications of death, and imagery of a happy, yet ghostly, couple.
