Gone but not forgotten

Gravestones in Cemetery 45, Greenville.

”We’re all glad they’re in a beautiful place and we’re coming up here ourselves when our fit’s over.” – from the play “Our Town” by Thornton Wilder.

Historical Cemetery Number 45 on Smith Avenue in Greenville has been in the news lately. There is a stone retaining wall that encloses a compartment facing the sidewalk on the west side of the street there. It is bulging ominously toward the walkway. For safety, access to the path has been blocked off by the state.
