Four graves in one


A headstone at the Cliff Catholic cemetery

The Cliff cemeteries are beautiful any time of year -- they've been overgrown with beautiful trees which keep them shady and cool. But they're even more beautiful in the winter, when everything is covered with a layer of snow. Here is one of the headstones, under a spreading pine tree. It's actually four headstones all at once: three young children and a wife. As much as I would have loved to have seen the Keweenaw back when the mines were still going strong, I'm also very glad not to live in times when life was this hard.

I'm searching the web for someone I lost contact with many years ago. This person shares your name and I thought there could be no harm in asking, "Is... that you?"


The person I am looking for will have lived in New York and in California. He will also have been in the Army during the mid-90's. He's a gamer, enjoying a variety of games, not limited to, but including V:tM.

If this isn't you, I apologize for the intrustion and offer you a heart-felt compliment on your photography. If this could be you, I ask if it might be possible to obtain an e-mail address to which I could send a query.

Thanks for your time.

Brujah -- nope, I'm not your long-lost friend. Sorry! (I've never lived in NY or CA nor been in the Army.)

Best of luck, and thanks for the compliment. :)
