TOMBSTONE OF MRS. DELIA HOPKINS- Eden Cemetery, Salisbury Cove, Mount Desert Island, MAINE
Today's tombstone is another example of a broken stone being preserved for future generations. Here, this stone broke years ago. But, whoever maintained the cemetery had the foresight to implant the broken stone flat on the ground so that we may know that Mrs. Hopkins is buried beneath it. Also notice what appears to be an open book in the top center of the stone. Maybe this represents the book of life.
