A Totally Weird Thing We Like to do

Everyone has a story and looking at the different tombstones of those who walked this earth before I did is surreal. My kids especially enjoy military cemeteries. The older the better! The one pictured below is of the Chattanooga National Cemetery. If you have ever seen the movie Hacksaw Ridge, Desmond Doss is buried here.

A while back we saw many people had left coins on the top of tombstones and wondered about it. I looked up what this meant and found different stories surrounding the meaning. Even though we are not sure of the origin we bring a pocketful of pennies with us. Plus, the coins all go to the cemetery for upkeep.

Pocketfuls of pennies,
