Your reply to my question was sweet and personal, and I appreciate the time you took to reply. “I spent many a spring and summer evening walking there as a child. I was especially interested in the Hillen graves, as they are just around the turn from my family plot. Babyland was very sweet, but a little bit frightening, since some of the babies would have been my age had they survived. Interesting too that the area was terraced, so it was like walking in a rock garden…— Ella L.
