Tomb Reflections

The comraderie, teamwork and friendship of our relief, the dedication and seriousness that we gave to our work, and the emotional and moving significance that we imparted to those who came to watch and pay respects. The beauty, peacefullness, and serenity of the plaza and cemetery, especially in the absence of the crowds. The difficulty and challenge of steamy hot, and freezing cold days for an hour on the mat.
