Good job with this Lisa. No father should be denied access to bid a farewell and a visit to his child. Too bad it had to come to negative publicity along with a camera crew to get this accomplished. Why hasn't the grave been properly marked yet?

Thanks, Bill, totally agree. It takes 6-8 weeks to place a marker once it has been ordered. FLHH contacts could not confirm for me whether or not one has been ordered to-date.

Great article and follow up.


Aww i`m glad her dad managed to visit her x

I would like to to state that a reliable paper writing service can be a good assistant on the road of analysis essay accomplishing. Hence, all students should use it anytime they need buy persuasive essay.

This is such a compassionate tribute. Having lost a child I say this with experience that to lose a child is the worst nightmare any parent could possibly experience. However, to have someone remember them, say their name or memorialize their life through voice, pen or video makes the loss just a little bit more bearable. You have a gift, which I pray the stars will always shine brighter to light your path!
Many Blessings

Thank you for this heartfelt tribute to Brittany Murphy. I am so glad her father was able to visit his daughter's grave site.

  • Exploring History From The Ground Up!

    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.

    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.
