The predominant “style” of gravestones throughout Karori Cemetery is grey concrete, fairly plain and mostly lacking adornment. The natural surroundings and bush setting provides the scenic backdrop. Just before Christmas this amazingly beautiful grave appeared. To the family who have commissioned this, and the stonemasons who worked on it, thank you for a splash of magnificent blue standing out from the surrounding greyness. An inspired choice and one that will please all those who view it for many years to come.
