Peaceful, easy feeling

·1 min read

Jul. 12—ALBANY — In a fast-paced world that moves at the speed of life, it's sometimes comforting to take a step back and spend some time in peaceful reflection. One place to do that is among those who have been brought to their final resting place.

Downtown Albany cemeteries — Riverside, Oakview and Crown Hill — offer such respite for those who visit loved ones buried in the shade of Spanish moss-draped trees, many laid to rest beneath striking architecture that provides a lasting memorial to their time on Earth.

Reading the names of those buried offers a glimpse at the history of the community and allows visitors the opportunity to show respect for those who've lived full lives before them.
