This beautiful memorial in Spring Hill Cemetery, in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, is one of the most beautiful by far. Dr. J. Addison Thompson put this as a memorial to his loving wife, Amanda Singleton. The inscription is as follows:
In commemoration of her many virtues, this monument is dedicated to Amanda Singleton, wife of Dr. J. A. Thompson, February 4, 1819 – March 9, 1878
When the doctor died three years later, an inscription was added to the back of the monument:
J. Addison Thompson, A.B., M.D., Fellow of the Ohio Medical Society, July 4, 1805 – April 2, 1881
But when we consider, whether it is a tall stately monument, or a small, simple stone, it’s the love of the two people – and other family members – that make it a beautiful memory. Let’s always carry those we love in our heart, and keep their memory burning brightly.
