When you walk through Bonaventure Cemetery many things will make themselves obvious to you. One of the is the number of beautiful grave markers and headstones that are all over Bonaventure. The photograph below is a photograph of on gorgeous cross located in Bonaventure Cemetery. Well, at least one of about 1,000 crosses anyways. This one caught my attention more than the others though. Like soo many other plots in Bonaventure Cemetery this was a family plot. For many generations, family members are buried side by side. This particular plot was right near the main entrance on Bonaventure Road.
