Tombstone Tuesday-Pictures on Tombstones

This was taken at Calvary Cemetery in Pittsburgh.  I absolutely love looking at tombstones with pictures.  These people are not related to me, I have yet to be lucky enough to find an ancestor with pictures on their marker.

Many times as a wander through a cemetery reading random stones I stand there wondering about the people buried there.  What were their lives like, what did they look like?  I just find it fascinating to be able to see pictures.  I think it is a wonderful way to honor those who have passed.  Here is a more close up picture.
