9/3/2012 …long time bond of love…

A morning of exploring took me to a cemetery in Marion County.  This unique gravestone is for Edwin L. Smith,  Company G, 3rd Florida Infantry, Confederate Sates of America….Born August 11, 1842…Died December 26, 1934.  The story goes that his faithful dog died two days later and the family placed this monument looking toward the stone to honor their long time bond of love.

  1. What a beautiful story and such a testiment to the love and loyalty of our pets. We have a very special dog named Daisy, that would probably do the same thing. What a blessing it is to have wonderful companions to share our life with.
