- It has only been recently in history that cemeteries are not places of gathering. My grandmother tells of town picnics being held in the local cemetery. I also remember when I was a youngster in Europe seeing kids running around cemeteries while their parents set up a picnic lunch near one of their deceased family members. Since when does respect mean quite and morbid. I hope when I die that folks come by and laugh and remember my life with shouts and giggles.

I did about 25-30 cemetery caches in the Effingham area this weekend and all the hides were very respectful, either in a very obvious tree or post or back in the woods 10-20 feet behind the cemetery. Lots of the tombstones had death dates of the early 1800's and some of the tombstones were very unique, ones that I never seen before.  Some were cylindrical marble, about 15" in diam and 3-4 feet wide. Others were large flat slabs of concrete, flush with the ground, 3' by 7' with a small raised piece at the foot with  the name, birth, death, etc.
