While Pere Lachaise Cemetery in Paris, France is most known for its graves of the rich and famous, the graves of the beloved unknown by far outnumber the famous dozens. While there last September, I spotted this heartfelt monument:
Pierre Gareau died 30 August 1815, age 49, leaving a widow and six children. This truly represents the grief his widow must have felt.
This post has some photos of the more famous folks buried there while this page has a bit on the history of the cemetery.
