Vacation wandering brought me to the tiny cemetery adjacent to The Chapel by the Sea located in Captiva Island, Florida. I was immediately attracted to Anna Emma Brainerd’s gravestone. A precious lamb sits atop the monument. The lamb is a Christian symbol of Jesus Christ the Lamb of God and of innocence and is a perfect symbol for a beloved child’s grave marker.
