Babies

Most cemeteries have a separate section for babies – those stillborn or who died in infancy. Some of the interred have full names, but some are just “Baby Smith.” It is a heartbreaking part of any cemetery as one imagines the anguish of the parents who have to bury their tiny, precious child. In “Baby Land” you will find many touching toys adorning the graves and mournful sayings on the tombstones.
