Tombstone Tuesday – Voldemārs Bērziņš, 1914-1925

In this series, I am providing pictures of tombstones from Latvian cemeteries, all with death dates prior to 1945. I do not have any further information on the people mentioned.

Top Inscription: “Še dus” (Here rests)

Name: Voldemārs Bērziņš, born May 7, 1914, died August 3, 1925.

Bottom Inscription: “Ja mīlestība spētu darīt brīnumus, un asaras mirušos modināt, tad Tevi nesegtu kapa smiltis” (If love was able to grant miracles, and tears awaken the dead, then you would not be covered by the sand of the grave)

Location: Meža kapi (“Forest Cemetery”), Rīga

This grave is in the same plot as the one from last week for a little girl by the name of Lilija Margareta Bērziņa. It is possible that they were brother and sister.
