THERE is an area in the old part of Rye cemetery that was reserved many years ago for babies and children.
Our daughter, Jane, is buried there and when I visited last week I noticed how well the grass had been cut, given the uneven ground, sunken and abandoned graves and overgrown edging stones.
When I got closer to Jane’s grave there was a solitary bluebell that had been left to flourish for a few more days, where the grass had been neatly cut around.
In these modern times where there is no respect and little compassion, I thought that was rather nice and showed that there are still people about who care.
