Cold and Alone


Ever since discovering the final resting place of Rose M. last summer, I can’t get this headstone and the young girl it represents out of my mind. So when the snow began to fall, I had to go see her.

Poor little Rose looked so cold and alone that day.

    A statue shows, that Rose M. has been loved, it`s a comforting thought.

    The thought of being cold and alone is so very sad, but as Mimmu said the statue being placed there is a loving act.

    Well, looking over the comments on your previous photo, if Cora Bradley was born in 1885, and Rose M. in 1898, that means that Cora had Rose when she was 13. I doubt a father figure would show up on there, especially if it was out of wedlock. These are all assumptions, but how would people react back then to a 13 year old mother?

    Shame, that’s so sad. But Mimmu’s words are comforting. Makes me think of the “Poor Little Match Girl”.

    Hey little girl, what are you doing out there alone?

    It was little Rose, not her mother, who was born in 1885 and died in 1898 at the age of 13. The dates are on her tombstone.

    Look at the tombstone again. It says she Rose M was born in 1898 and died in 1911.
