The Tombstone Team

Here rests the dust of
Paul Larson
Born 12 November 1821 in Gevnager, Hadeland, Norway.
Died 27 October 1878
(just west of 56572)

Tomorrow's Pelican Rapids Press - got your online subscription already? - has a story about a local woman who has a hobby of cleaning gravestones. I have a hobby of reading gravestones searching in vain for the true meaning of life. Should you need either or both of our services, we make a good team, guarantee our work and are reasonably priced.

Gevnager is an interesting name combining the words gevn (flat) and ager (acre). My great-grandfather's middle name was guld (gold) ager.
