We've driven by this amazing shrine on our way to the Outer Banks, and finally had to stop. Though there are several graves, it appears to be in memory of Raymond Grady, lost to drowning in 1915, his eighteenth year.
The rainbow with a pot of gold, small church and other careful details are the relics of a family's grief. A sad celebration of a young life.
