The grave of actor David Carradine, located at Forest Lawn Memorial Park Hollywood Hills, now sports a lovely memorial tablet. It was installed two days ago, on Thursday, December 3, 2009. (If you missed my last report about how to find his grave, click here.)My friend Walter Acuña and I took a spin out there today despite threats of rain. We found not only the brand new marker for "The Barefoot Legend," but also five fresh poinsettia plants accenting the grave with some holiday cheer.
Below are detailed images of the text which includes a touching epitaph and a quote from David. Click on each image to see a high-resolution version for easier reading.
Update 12/7/2009: Thank you reader Deanne for pointing out that the quote portion at the bottom of the marker are lyrics from the theme song "Paint" which David wrote and performed for his 1989 film, "Sonny Boy." Listen to it here on YouTube, courtesy of TeenageStrangler.
