PILGRIMAGE TO JEFFERSON BARRACKS CEMETERY


December 4, 2016

It was both a somber and an enjoyable morning for me. Sabrina, my niece, and her husband Dave (Smiths, they are) invited me to breakfast and to their annual Christmas visit to Sabrina's parents' graves.  (Sabrina's mother and father are my sister and brother-in-law, Margaret and Norman Abbott.)  Sabrina every year orders a Christmas wreath for the plot in the veteran's cemetery in south St. Louis County.

This national cemetery is a beautiful place overlooking the Mississippi River.  Below are two photos Sabrina took, one of the gravesite with the wreath, another of seven deer we saw grazing unperturbed by the road nearby.
