A headstone in winter, Yellowstone National Cemetery

After a fierce Montana blizzard, I went to the Yellowstone National Cemetery and saw a headstone which appeared to be shedding a tear in solitary sorrow. The blizzard also almost buried an artificial floral arrangement next to the stone. The name on the headstone faced the other direction, but the grave could represent any stone in any US national cemetery and the memory and sorrow of those interred.
