27 days - Cemetery Tuesday - White Chapel

White Chapel Memorial Park is located in Troy, Oakland County, Michigan. 
It's 200+ acres of beautiful peacefulness. 
The Polar Bears Memorial of WWI.
 
 Being a Memorial Park, the majority of headstones are flush with the ground, 
but the statuary is art in itself.  
I'm sure they all have names, but I didn't document those. 
Love this one!
