Phil Wasden's Photos from the Gunnison Cemetery

Phil writes that the touching inscription on great-grandfather John Christenson's marker reads as follows: "Amiable and beloved father farewell!  Not on this perishing stone, but in the Book of Life, and in the hearts of thy afflicted friends is thy worth recorded."

The inscription on Great Grandfather Christenson's headstone certainly validates our comments about him that were posted with his picture on an earlier post. For me, the tangible sight of these headstones creates a unique reminder of our connection to these amazing people.
