The irony of funeral home names

Matchbook cover 4

Van Wormer needs a little thought (worms), but the Byrn Funeral Home definitely made me look twice.

Time’s teeth have been gnawing on this one

He who shall not be named

Considering how well-preserved and maintained the other stones are in this cemetery (Milford Methodist Church), this weathered marker presents a bit of a mystery.

Hello my name is…???

Hello my name is...

Found this gem in the Milford Methodist Church graveyard.

I’m really not sure whether this was an actual memorial (it’s in the middle of  several more traditional headstones), or if it serves as a location marker for a future burial site. Either way, it’s really quite interesting up close as the texture bears a close resemblance to a human brain.

What’s in a name? Sometimes a really good story in the making.

The Work brothers.

No, this is not an April Fools Day trick.

The Thomas and John Tom Work headstones do exist and are located in the Milford Methodist Church cemetery in upstate New York.
