Behind IN MEMORY OF

kindleinmemoryofcoverSociety has buried those branded outcast in unmarked graves, at cross-roads, and outside the cemetery fence. Crossbones Graveyard is a famous, or infamous, example.

IN MEMORY OF is my version of this cruel custom. It’s the story of an unmarked grave outside the cemetery fence closer to Mobile than Montgomery, wedged between woods and water, in a place nobody goes. According to folklore, Thomas John Sutton, 14, is buried under.

Thomas loves Esther, but she isn’t accepted in Canaan because of her bastard birth. After discovering the secret of his birth, Thomas fears he’ll be treated the same. It’s another example of two teenagers struggling against an unforgiving society.

More SECOND BLESSING Quotes

Life is mostly about dying anyway. We never grow accustom to the permanent shadow, no matter how often it falls. 

Sometimes it seems like all life is is sayings, one worn-out cliché after another.

Momma always said, ‘God takes care of fools and drunks.’ Guess we all have our soft spots.

“We’re all going to die of something someday anyway.”

Got to pretend to be nice. Dang this Southern blood! For once why can’t I be cold-blooded like Yankees or reptiles?

SECOND BLESSING Quotes

Life is like that old seasick joke. First, you pray cause you’re afraid you’re going to die. Then, you pray cause you’re afraid you’re not.

Appearances won’t get you into Heaven.

I don’t care if the streets of Heaven are gold or not as long as they’re clean and I don’t have to sweep them.

Most preachers tend to forget they’re dust like the rest of us. 

Some folks shouldn’t ever leave home.

SECOND BLESSING
