Opportunity

My visit to Iberia Cemetery was what I call an “opportunistic stop.” One of those heck-so-long-as-we’re-in-the-neighborhood type of stop.

Not to be confused with hey-I-see-a-cemetery-over-there! type of stop.

The monument that marks the grave of Lizzie S. Hunter (d. 1872) is a handsome classic: A draped pedestal supporting a large urn. The inscription face features a nice carving of a single lily.

By the way, are you taking the opportunity to visit family graves this Memorial Day weekend?
