General Protestant Cemetery in St. John's, Newfoundland

My friend Wyatt E. sent me this photo from a cemetery in his neighborhood.  Well, he sent me several, but this is the only one I’ll post right this second… along with a quote from the photographer.

The gravesite with the balloons around it made me really misty not because the tombstone itself was particularly special, but to see someone honored for so long after their death as if they were as live as the rest of us was a treatment I wish more people could get.
