lily lake cemetery
Small country cemeteries are carved out at the edges of corn and soybean fields. The Lily Lake Cemetery is at the top of a small rise overlooking flat farmland in every direction. It's as if the settlers decided they wanted to rest forever overlooking the land they loved and farmed for their livelihood. It seems very lonely in the wintertime, cold and barren with nothing to stop the relentless wind. My daughter's friend Cody is buried here.
