baby graves

Despite the large number of baby graves in the cemetery, I never seem to get jaded - they always make me stop for a minute or two. Some tell the age of their lost baby,
some let you figure it out,
and some tell exactly how many days their little one lived.
Still, some only give a name.
Some only give the sex.
And some give no more than this.
This story particularly struck me (it's fitting that the tombstone is shaped like an open book):
Carl died at five months, Therese died at four months, and three months after baby Therese's death, the father/husband Emil died as well at the young age of 25.
