grave post - Harmidarow
Anyway, for this week's Taphophile Tragics, in honour of the brilliant sunshine we are having today and the brilliant sunshine we had on this day in early April when I took this shot, I am showing a modern marker for John and Sophie Harmidarow. Sophie passed on 7 years before John who "died peacefully at home with his family by his side" in his 85th year, on Christmas Eve, 2010. Together John Walter and Sophia had three children (Walter, Michael and Irene) and three grandchildren (Mathew, Michael, Ryan). Other than the fact that son Walter John is, among other things, a Sherlockian and wrote a novel in 1998 called The Final Solution (click on link for a critical review), i could find no information on this family.
They have a lovely view from their small plot in the Woodland Cemetery over the bay to Hamilton.
