In reference to George Hall noticing small stones on the large stone. The
custom is that when one visits the grave of a deceased person you mark your
visit with a small stone taken >from outside the cemetery. When I travel to
a distant place I try to return with a stone >from that country which I
place on my father's gravestone as I tell him about my trip. This also
shows other people that the deceased has had many visitors which I
personally don't care for.
