Sarah Durrant – Lamb of Christ Tombstone

The design of Sarah Durrant’s tombstone is frequently seen in cemeteries in Utah.  The design was popular for the markers children who died early in life.

The soft stone that was used because of the ease of carving the Lamb on top.  Unfortunately, the markers deteriorate due to weathering as evidenced in this marker.
