I was searching for my grand parents grave when I came across the gravestone of Cora Kingston.
It wasn’t all that remarkable save for the one line that grabbed my attention: “A baker of delicious apple pies and slices”.
I thought she must have made a mark on those around her for that line to be etched onto her gravestone.
She eighty-nine years old, so the stone said, I calculated that was a lot of apple pies.
I assumed this lady was missed in death, the tribute said so much, and I wondered what they might add about me.
