We found 3 graves which had their names and dates worn off over time and lit candles and said a prayer to whoever was buried there.
There was something extremely comforting about driving away and seeing our candles flickering in the graveyard. The only ones lit right before sunset.
I wonder what language this grave stone is written in and what it says...
We found another grave that was part of a Polish family's group. The young man had died during WWII and was a member of the US Armed Forces. We lit a candle for him and said thank you for serving this country and that perhaps this old Polish tradition might bring him and his family comfort.
Out of respect for the family, I didn't take pictures to share.
