The Cemetery
Once upon a time, on a dark, quiet, and almost eerie night, there were two girls walking past the cemetery on the way to a friend’s Halloween party. When all the sudden the two girls heard screams of help. Startled by this they decide to go into the cemetery. The fog rolled over the tombstones, just barely visible by the full moon. Towards the middle of the cemetery a dark and ominous figure stood staring at us. It looked like a man but when we took a second look the figure was gone, and then out of nowhere came a warlock from behind a tree, and swooped down. His screams were ear piercing, and his eyes glowed like fire. We ran for our lives. As we ran through the cemetery in hopes of finding the exit, we notice all the graves had been dug up. We didn’t know what we were going to be up against. Our only hope was to find our way out. We walked further into the cemetery and came up upon a tomb. We were about to walk past it when a huge group of bats started coming at us. We decided to take shelter in the tomb. As we entered the tomb we could smell death. I looked down only to notice a trail of bloody footprints. When we looked around we couldn’t see anyone. Then there was a loud bang on the tomb door that made all of us jump. The door was closed; the only option was to walk through the tomb. We were so scared.
After walking for what seemed to be an eternity, we notice a light at the end of the tunnel. We all had a moment of hope. We rushed to the end to find that there was a way out. Once we got out, we looked to see two more of our friends simply playing a Halloween prank on us.…...

Many mature oak trees and a few mature pine trees possibly planted at the time of cemetery foundation fills the cemetery. At the south eastern region is an archway painted white with the lettering of Lone Pine cemetery written across the top. To my opinion the gravestones are all in good conditions with some older ones needing cleaning and renovations. Several graves have flowers giving the foresight that the cemetery's care is adequate.

...Pamela Kofton ANT 102 Cultural Anthropology Fall 2012 Ellsworth Center Marlboro Cemetery Lamoine, MaineThis old time cemetery in Hancock County, Maine seems, at first glance, to be a forgotten patch of Maine woods. Adjacent to a new housing development, Marlboro Woods with large homes spread out on Ldyia's lane, a seemingly bustling neighborhood of the future, an overgrown woods path leads to an entrance marked with a bent iron gate attached to stone pillars and delineated by a wire fence. Marlboro Cemetery is located in Lamoine, Maine off Route 204 (called Partridge Cove Rd) approximately 4.4 miles from the intersection of Rt 184 and 204. Turn left onto Lydia's Lane, drive approximately 0.1 miles. There is a path to the cemetery on the right. The cemetery is named Marlboro Cemetery. Marlboro is a village which was incorporated into the town of Lamoine. Although a number of gravestones do display Christian symbols, there seems to be no obvious church or religious affiliation represented, leading me to deduce this cemetery was used by all town members. There are a total of twenty two surnames represented with no prevailing ethnicity. Wives are buried with their husbands showing this is a patriarchal society. Most stones are crafted from the local granite with a few different types unrecognizable to me. Surnames Represented in Marlboro Cemetery (QTY) | Bowden (2) | Bragdon (6) | Closson (1) | Corey (1 + 1 Dog) | Ford (5) |......

Observational Essay

...Cemetery Death is nothing foreign to us; we all have it in common. Many of us have lost relatives and loved ones. We will also be placed here one day. There is beauty and life in a cemetery that many don’t see. Entering the cemetery one will notice the many activities that occur such as; the groundskeepers who make sure the grass and grounds are well maintained. The beautiful and neatly placed headstones with titles and dates of expirations, reminds me of those who were near and dear to me that have passed on to eternal life. A cemetery is not the dreaded and scary place of superstitions, but a place that holds life even after death. The sounds of life as I enter the cemetery are so subtle and still. I opened my ears and listened with my mind as I crept through the green grass pushing the dirt up with my feet, careful not to awaken those who were sleeping. One could hear the cries of family members who were weeping the loss of a loved one. Conversations between family members, who live miles away, traveled a long distance to share this celebration of life. One will also hear the swift gentle breeze as it calms those in distress. The chirping of the birds as they witness the flying doves, which symbolizes that one, has been set free. It speaks of life; the deceased have received their wings. Life here on earth has ended and a new life has just begun. One can appreciate the sight of activities that takes place at the cemetery. Those who come by to......

Galiee Memorial Gardens

...long story short, Galilee is one of the many cemeteries in Tennessee, and it would have remained unknown and unpopular if not for the recent scandal. The owner of the cemetery, Jemar Lambert chose to make some extra cash and thus used the cemetery beyond its current capacity for which he is now charged with theft of property and abuse of a corpse. Jemar sold many of the pre-need plots and ended up selling more than the cemetery could currently hold. Therefore, he chose to ultimately bury corpses outside the cemetery, on the lands that did not belong to him. Furthermore, after finding out that some graves were too old and unattended, and he expected that no relatives would ever know, he dumped multiple bodies in the same graves, apparently freeing up some space that can be resold, but without proper permission to do so(Jacobson, 2014). From the publicly available information one finds out that the state ordered Galilee to stop operations in 2011, yet the cemetery continued to operate till 2014 in a usual manner. In another article one learns that “the permit for Galilee expired in 2010, when state documents reflected they no longer had room to bury bodies, but that owner Jemar Lambert “continued to bury individuals after that, and continued to sell what they call pre-need plots,” which are burial plots purchased before death.” (Alter, 2014). No government or non-government agency ever posed questions why the cemetery was still in operation. As a result......

American Funerals

...sellers, such as casket or monument dealers, or to cemeteries that lack an on-site funeral home. In brief, the Funeral Rule gives you the right to: ●buy only the funeral goods and services you want. You have the right to buy separate goods, like caskets, and separate services, like embalming or a memorial service. You don’t have to accept a package with items you don’t want. ●get price information by telephone. Funeral directors must give you price information on the telephone if you ask for it. You don’t have to give them your name, address or telephone number first. Many funeral homes mail their price lists, although they aren’t required to; some post them online. ●get a written itemized price list when you visit a funeral home. The funeral home must give you a General Price List (GPL) to keep. It must list 16 specific items and services, but it may include others, as well. ●see a written price list for caskets before you see the actual caskets. Sometimes, detailed casket price information is included on the funeral home’s GPL. More often, though, it’s provided on a separate 4 casket price list. Get the price information before you see the caskets, so you can ask about lowerpriced products that may not be on display. ●see a written price list for outer burial containers. Outer burial containers surround a casket in a grave. They are not required by any state law, but many cemeteries require them to prevent a grave from......

...A Cemetery of Peace The most peaceful and serene place for me to go is the Calvary Hill cemetery located in Humble, Texas. I go there to visit my mother’s grave, reflect, and reminisce. As I drive into the cemetery on the long gravel road to the hilltop where my mother’s grave is located, I am greeted by the big beautiful green trees, the rainbow of flowers on the graves, and the calmness of the cemetery. Once I step outside the busy world and into the cemetery world, I feel peace and serenity. There is always a cool breeze in the cemetery regardless of the heated temperatures. Once I park and then take a seat next to my mom’s grave, I begin to feel the wind blow through my hair and I can feel the hands of the cool breeze hug me. It’s almost as if God himself came to comfort me. I can see the wind dancing in the grass and the birds soaring in the air above me. Another added feature to this cemetery is the pretty ducks meticulously moving across the pond. When I close my eyes to soak in all that nature has to offer, the fresh clean air begins to fill my nostrils along with the fresh cut grass that smells like a good ripe watermelon. When I begin to listen to God’s creation, I can hear the birds singing songs of praise. The musical ringing of the wind chimes fill my ears with sweet melodies. As I leave the cemetery, I am more relaxed and ready to conquer all that life has to offer....

Her Fearful Symetrey

...Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger Reading guide About the Book Julia and Valentina Poole are normal American teenagers – normal, at least, for identical ‘mirror’ twins who have no interest in college or jobs or possibly anything outside their cosy suburban home. But everything changes when they receive notice that an aunt whom they didn’t know existed has died and left them her flat in an apartment block overlooking Highgate Cemetery in London. They feel that at last their own lives can begin ... but have no idea that they’ve been summoned into a tangle of fraying lives, from the obsessive-compulsive crossword setter who lives above them to their aunt’s mysterious and elusive lover who lives below them, and even to their aunt herself, who never got over her estrangement from the twins’ mother – and who can’t seem to quite leave her flat.... With Highgate Cemetery itself a character and echoes of Henry James and Charles Dickens, Her Fearful Symmetry is a delicious and deadly twenty-first-century ghost story about Niffenegger’s familiar themes of love, loss and identity.

Battle of Gettysburg, and by evening was entrenching on Culp’s and Cemetery hills south of town. Lee expressed a desire for General Ewell to assault the hills without waiting for further reinforcement, but he failed to make it an express order. Ewell did not press his tired men forward, giving Meade time to reinforce the troops on the hills. Day 2: July 2, 1863 Lt Gen Longstreet’s corps had arrived with 20,000 men and were sent to outflank the Union left, which was anchored to the south by two distinguishing hills known as Little Round Top and Big Round Top. Gen Lee learned early that morning from a reconnaissance report that the hills were unoccupied and offered a great position to flank the Union Army. The Union didn’t put troops on those hills until it’s position was recognized to be valuable. Ewell was to make a demonstration against Culp’s and Cemetery hills on the Union right and to use his own discretion about launching a full-scale attack. Longstreet’s men, moving toward their objective, had to revise their route after Brig Gen McLaws discovered the planned route would put them in full view of the Federals, taking away any advantage of surprise. This cost valuable time but, as events turned out, a Union general was about to present them an unexpected opportunity. All but one of Meade’s seven corps were now on the field, deployed in a fish-hook shape with its center along Cemetery Ridge; the defensive positions on Culp’s and Cemetery hills formed the hook at one end. The left......

Organizational Analysis

...Week 4 Assignment Organizational Analysis, Part II National Cemetery Administration Student Name Professor Human Resources October 00, 2011 The National Cemetery Administration is a federal agency that has been tasked with honoring the military service of our nation’s veterans. This organization is made up of many cemeteries and main offices in the United States and Puerto Rico. Each cemetery is tasked with providing burial services to the military member and their eligible dependents. This can include a spouse or in some cases children. Each cemetery has the number of employees needed to meet its own burial volume. There are cemeteries that are full and only accept subsequent interments. They will have one to three burials a month. There are newer cemeteries that have slightly over one hundred burials in a month. Some established national cemeteries bury that many in a week. Each cemetery has different personnel and geographic needs. To determine what human resources each cemetery might need it is important to factor in the local community. Is there a military base really close? Is there a large percentage of veteran retirees in the area? There are many ways to look at how you need to determine your future burial needs. If like in Florida you have a high percentage of veteran retirees, you might need to plan for higher numbers of interments and thus more employees. In Georgia where there are many retirees you still need enough......
