A low relief angel depicted as if materializing at the grave to take home these children of God or perhaps symbolic of how the departed buried below, their names all close to the Heaven's door, were all indeed met and welcomed in. Carved by Gettysburg Battlefield famed sculptor, John Walz for 2 wives and a husband all buried together, and while married in different chapters of life, perhaps the grave style speaks a certain reality or truth about such choices regarding spouses or even how they may have lived around each other. No one is sure less to say the F.D. Ruckert house is really two homes joined together on Jones Street, suggesting they lived side by side and as F.D. Ruckert owned a tavern on Broughton St in the 1870s, many a joke made about "that wild bar life." Really its just fun to theorize but most find humor in the grave's use of the word "Also." Like, "And also featuring his 2nd wife Louila." Beautiful and proof graves can make you laugh. #gravehumor #gravesite #funny #humor #marriage #wives #husbands #bar #tavern #pub #polyamorous #Savannah #bonaventure #cemetery #gettysburg #johnwalzsculptor #art #sculptors at Bonaventure Cemetery Journeys

Pre-penicillin, 1928, every family in this country, poor, modest or rich, went to a bank the week their child was born and opened a savings account for the funeral fund of their child. Not college fund, but funeral. Part of the expense was dedicated to the memento mori photo. Few owned a photo of their child alive due to photography's expense, so the one they ended up with, the one of them deceased. It was often replicated at great cost as a keepsake announcement to be mailed out to family and friends. Here we see a little Greek boy in a Greek military uniform. The particular studio where this was taken was in Savannah's City Market.
