I think my ancestor Mary Fudge would be surprised about a lot of things in this world 140 years after being laid to rest in the Rowetown Cemetery at Toria, Kentucky.
I am sure that the flowers blooming on her resting place in December would be among the many miracles that would fascinate her.
She would probably be happy that the Honeysuckle growing on her grave and nearby will bloom come hot weather, that many of her family and friends are laid to rest nearby, that the old Redbud that signaled the coming of Spring for so many years is resting peacefully near her headstone, that the squirrels have had plenty of Hickory nuts to eat this winter, that we still pay our respects, and that we are still looking in the direction her headstone points. -Billy Joe Fudge
