The book of life #1


Books of Life

Lots of times in older cemeteries, visitors will see books carved onto the stones. Sometimes they’re open (signifying a life’s deeds open for review and judgment) or closed (signifying a life ended, no more deeds or accomplishments to be recorded).  If the book is a Bible, then the person commemorated was most likely a minister/clergyman or a particularly religious person.
