There are lots of plots with ornaments in Waikumete Cemetery but a small, lonely looking, dog — seen while I was walking the dog — made me wonder about the story behind these graves.
it wasn’t new, but appeared less weathered than the grave it was minding. A small sign at its feet just said “Welcome”.
Jane was born May 17 1944 and died on January 11 1945. Twin sister Susan in the grave beside just a few days later on January 19 1945.
No family name or other details. I wonder about tragedy behind these brief lives and the significance of a small white puppy.
