Joost, Your photos are both moving and beautiful. I will send them to my two best riends, my 90 year old granpa and my 89 year old online genealogy friend; she lost her brother, a paratrooper, in Belgium in wwii and he is buried at Henri-Chapelle. We saw his grave online recently and they sent a photo to her so that she could see it for the first time.
She was so pleased by the photo but also by the care with which these graves and monuments are honored. I am glad it is the same where you are.
My granpa, though he was in the Pacific during WWII, will love the beauty and dignity of the graveyard photos. He loves both snow and beautiful photography and I am sure will share these with his younger brother, who was there.
Thank you. It was a rough Monday morning at home 'till I saw these.
