So many children. Their parents' sadness comes through so clearly. I'm reminded of that poem by Edgar Lee Masters that goes "Child! Child! Death is better than life."

Thank you for posting.

I agree. In my own local small pioneer cemetery, we have a mother buried with her newborn in her arms. Sepsis.

Thanks for the Masters reminder!
