Memorial for a Farmer. I Almost Cried.

 Illinois farmers know how to pay a tribute. My goodness do they know how... The Modern Farmer posted an article about a most unique tribute to a fallen farmer; the man was only 31 when he died of cancer. He left a wife, two kids, and a farm behind. After his death, the entire farming community rallied together to create a memorial that is not easily forgotten.

 Here's the article if you should so desire to read it. The photography is to die for, and the story compelling. I think the part that got me tearing up was -- well, you should read it first. I don't want to spoil anything. ;)

  There is hope for humanity yet, I tell ya'.
