Tombstone Tuesday -- Pasquale Ursino's Wall

Until this past summer, no one in my family knew where my great-grandfather, Pasquale Ursino, was buried.  My mother found her grandfather when she visited the town hall in Catania, Sicily.  The cemetery is like a city, so there would have been no way to walk around and look for it.  For background on the grave's history, read here.

My great-grandfather is on the top row, second one from the right.

The epitaph says he is 80 years old and died the 27th of February 1944. 
Thanks to Kathy Kirkpatrick, who went to Sicily in November and sent me these photos.
