Unique Homemade Grave Markers

While driving a back road near Savannah Georgia, we happened upon a small missionary baptist church behind a cluster of trees featuring its own cemetery.  This is a real rarity to find a church with its own cemetery burying people currently.  There were very few graves, but a couple caught our attention because they were unique.  Unique and homemade.  It was obvious that someone had poured out the slabs of cement and then used a stick to write upon them.  The centerpiece of these markers were large glass pieces.  We are left to wonder what the glass was meant to symbolize.  Possibly looking through the veil to the other side or perhaps the glass was just meant to be decorative.  Either way, there is no doubt these stones were made with love.
