A Good Place To Finally Rest
At the very end of a long drive down APA road lies the Point Roberts community cemetery. This well maintained final resting place for many nationalities was first created in 1915. Many plots are informal with plastic animals, vases and memorabilia adorning the grave sites. Several places have benches for visitors to sit and remember days past with the dearly departed souls whose remains are resting below. There are also formal designations with fences of all kinds to mark a certain family's boundary while others seem to just flow freely on the grassy knolls.
Often the grave sites seem to reflect the manner in which the occupants lived their lives on the Point and elsewhere. Some areas have a definite attitude or ambiance. Upon further contemplation we believe "the chain of life to be unbroken" because of continuing earth family ties and the eternal life concept that we hope for ourselves and others. In the end, we will be remembered for our actions and deeds during our lifetime, no matter how long it was. I feel the greatest reward at the conclusion of our life is giving hope and inspiration to others and have a few say, "he was a good man."
When we reach out and embrace our neighbors we see pictures that enhance everyday life in our own international community.
