Written on stone

Cemeteries abound in beautifully cut text - 
When the lettering is lead, added onto the stone, the stone behind might weather -
... and the letters can loosen, drop away -
A slow falling from memory ...

I've not seen lettering like this, it is so evocative of the disappearance of a life once lived.
