Today we went to decoration. Not many people still have decoration or even understand this word as an event! Most people now just go to the cemetery on Memorial Day week end and leave their flowers on loved ones graves. We still have dinner! It's not on the ground we have tables and lawn chairs but we have lunch at a little church in a community called Double Top where my husband's paternal grandparents and many of his relatives are buried. We stop at a couple of cemeteries along the way and leave flowers. We met this morning at Mt. Era cemetery in the Moodyville Community and decorated.
The next stop was the Beaty Cemetery just a few yards beyond this one. It is located on a hill top. This is were my grandparents and cousins are buried.
Our next stop was Double Top where we had a great lunch at a small country church and visited with Gibson cousins. It's a tradition that is dying but we're doing our part to keep it alive.
