Ross Bay Cemetery ~ 2

In my 2nd post of photos from Ross Bay Cemetery in Victoria, B.C. there are a few photos from the Military Section of the grounds.

 

To the memory of those who died for King and Country in the Great War 1914-1919

1939-1945

 

 

This next Tombstone I found very weird. Not exactly what I’d want watching over my dust.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This angel is a lot more comforting than that bird!

 

We got some sunshine today and it was such a welcome relief.  I did some shopping for our Easter Meal and stopped in at one of my favorite cooking equipment stores. When I got home I was able to mow the lawn and it was so much easier this week than last.

We were very saddened this past Sunday to hear about a devastating tornado that destroyed some military housing and damaged several more military homes at Camp Lejeune, N.C. This is the Marine Base where our son-in-law is stationed. He was not at the base at the time but someone in his unit got the call that his wife was injured and his toddler was in critical condition because of the tornado destroying their home. Please pray for this family as the mom is needing medical attention and the toddler is still in critical condition. Thank you.

Photobucket replaced all my photos with these blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.

  1. That’s always painful news to hear! May the Lord touch and heal as only He can! What a peaceful and interesting place is this cemetery! Haven’t seen such a variety of headstones anywhere!

  2. Praying for that sweet young family. I’m with you on that eagle. My parents swear that they saw a tombstone in my mom’s home town that read…”I told you I was sick”. Interesting what some people think of for the head stones.

  3. Will definitely pray, Ellen. Thanks for the heads up.

    I enjoyed seeing all the different motifs on those tombstones. The one with the Celtic knots from your previous post is intriguing.

  4. Beautiful art work in the cemetery, easing family loss.

    I too would like to know the story behind the bird. My mind is running wild with hilarious reasons for it…

  5. Praying for the family in NC trusting that our mighty God is already at work and thank you for the prayer request on their behalf.

  6. I live in the Piedmont Triad of NC. The damage from the tornadoes on Saturday
    were all done east of us. I will definitely pray for those at Camp LeJuene in
    Jacksonville, NC. There were many deaths in our state and the destruction is great in a small county the northeast NC near VA.
    Thank you for sharing this story, Ellen.
    God Bless and have a blessed Easter.
    Love from Sandy in NC
