Stones of remembrance

I took a walk today through Temple Beth Am's Cemetery Gan Shalom at Abby View Memorial Park.

"Even when visiting Jewish graves of someone that the visitor never knew, the custom is to place a small stone on the grave using the left hand. This shows that someone visited the gravesite, and is also a way of participating in the mitzvah of burial." ~ from Wikipedia
