Mount Zion Church Day 18

Happy Good Friday from historic Mount Zion Church cemetery in Nottingham Township, Pa.

This sculpture of Jesus adorns a tombstone on the grave of Sgt. Randolph Wayne Metz, who died in 1998 just shy of his 77th birthday.

He served in World War II in which he became a prisoner of war. 

Despite those obstacles, the tombstone is etched with this epitaph: "I never had it so good."

Have a nice Easter.
