The Cenotaph - derived from two Greek words signifying "an empty tomb" has come by later usage to mean any form of memorial erected in honor of one whose mortal remains are elsewhere interred or lost. It is a particularly fitting tribute to the sailor lost at sea or the soldier who lies buried in a foreign land. Many such memorials will be placed in our cemeteries by the relatives and friends of those who so perished in the World War. Whether they take the form of simple marker or costly monument, Dark Barre Granite, the "Rock of Ages" because its beauty is everlasting-is a particularly ap propriate material for this purpose.
