LB,

I always love reading your articles. You wrapped this story up like King Tut!

The thing I'd like to know is How old is Westwood Memorial Park? How much does it cost to move in there? The place truly...(how does the saying go?) has more stars than there are in heaven.... Well, pert-near.

"We seek him here, we seek him there
Those Frenchies seek him everywhere!
Is he in heaven? Or is he in hell?
That demmed Elusive Pimpernel?"

Is he there too?

xxxooo,
RODAN

As always, a wonderful article Lisa!

Great story Lisa. I so love graveyards too and this story about Marilyn and then Betti Paige are just great. You write so well.

    I enjoy spending time exploring cemeteries, reading and photographing headstones of celebrities and civilians alike, and learning about the lives and deaths of these so-called "permanent residents" of the graveyards and mausoleums. This blog chronicles those experiences.

    In addition to this blog, some of my older material is archived at Buried Treasures at LisaBurks.com

    One of the cemeteries I'm most interested in these days is Grand View Memorial Park in Glendale, Calif. I wrote about its legal problems for the LA Daily News' community hub, ValleyNews.com from August 2006 to December 2008, when Valley News ceased operations. In response to reader requests to have one central source of information, I created and continue to maintain Grand View Memorial Park (dot) Info.
