A Grave designed so a Mother could still Comfort a Child

A mother  had this grave designed for her 10-year-old daughter in 1871. While she was alive, the daughter was terrified of storms. The grave was constructed with an entrance that descends to the level of the coffin. Her mother could go into  the tomb during storms to comfort her child.
