Muskoka Trip cemetery




In all my photo-stories of our Toronto/Muskoka trip I forgot to tell you about my folks! The plot in the cemetery looks good.

Joan Jilks 1925 - 2006
 Ray Jilks 1925 - 2007


A stone has been placed on the plot beside them (Pratt). There are lots of names, and birth dates, but no death dates. I presume they are being prepared, planning ahead.


It's a lovely cemetery. Lots of interesting stones and placements.

Evelyn Pearl Shand 1938 - 2010
Alexander James Shand 1931 - 2015
Norman Elder 1939- 2003
(His is quite the life story on Wiki!)


Off we went on our tour.

Beautiful shots. I guess it's become more common in the last thirty or so years to carve a name into a stone in advance.

The cemetery gives us all kinds of reasons to pause and think about the lives of other. In a small local cemetery like hours most people are known.

Beautiful two headstones!
I go to the cemetery once a year, before the jewish High Holidays. This is the time to ask Forgiveness and pray for a Good New Year. I come back feeling unwell as the place is very sunny and I usually do some cleaning work of the stones and around them.

|We used to go to the cemeteries and have a little communion with the ancestors. Not living in the area anymore (Hastings and Prince Edward and Peterborough), it doesn't happen very often.

Os cemitérios são locais de muita paz. Eu aprecio visitar.
