  1. what do the kisses represent? obviously love/admiration but does it relate in any other way to OW?

    • Hi james, look at that figure on the headstone, it’s lips are puckered and begging for a kiss.
      Problem is, one would have to climb up there to kiss it as the lips are about 8 feet from ground level.

  2. What a great tribute!

  3. you are lucky to have this shot, now they put a glass fence all around the statue
