Tombstone Tuesday ~ From Costa Rica ~ Benavides Hernandez

This is the resting place for my husband's uncle in Heredia, Costa Rica.

This is the gravesite of the Benavides Hernandez family. In Costa Rica, the children are given the last name of the father and then the mother, hence "Benavides Hernandez." In Costa Rica my husbands last name was Benavides Benavides.

This inscription shows that Ricardo Benavides passed away on June 27, 1996. This was my husband's mother's brother. I met him once, roughly five years before he died.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wishing you success in all of your genealogical treasure hunts!
