On a recent walk through Oller Cemetery, I came upon the walnut tree again. Where was Baby Spong’s marker? Was it was not this tree? Had someone stolen the broken marker?
Within moments I saw it: Repaired, off the damp ground, resting against a larger gravestone.

How great to see signs of extra care in Oller Cemetery!
