Mr B is doing lots of research on his family and mentioned hed sure like to have pictures of their headstones.

Hes thinking about a trip back there...mostly in Arkansas and that area. Since you do a lot of that do you know of a URL that might have those?

My favorite gravestone is one by my cousin's in Mount Sinai Memorial Park that reads, "I told you I was sick."

That's a pretty popular inscription, actually. I've seen several that say that.

There's an actress interred in the mausoleum at Hollywood Forever (sorry, I can't remember her name offhand) whose plaque reads: "Go away! I'm sleeping!" In life, she loved her sleep time and chose that for the inscription because of that.

My favorite though is this:

That one's at Forest Lawn in Glendale (very near Ted Knight). I'd love to know the story behind that one...

That's a strange one. I wonder what the story is behind that one. If you asked the office there, would they tell you?

I really doubt it, and I'd be afraid to ask. Forest Lawn is well known for being downright assholes if you're asking about a grave of anyone other than a personal relative, especially if you're looking for someone famous. I don't go anywhere near their office.

Too bad. I'd love to hear the story about that one.
