Simply wonderful.


Nice tribute. RIP, Angel.

You have a lovely site and I am so glad that you care about Farrah Fawcett because I care too and I was so sad that she lost her battle with cancer. What a beautiful final resting place for her though. Thank you for what you do and for sharing these photos. Rest in Peace Farrah---We miss you!

Oh Lisa, this made me cry...but in a good way, of course. Thank you for the post and the pictures, especially the lovely flowers...Lynn

This was a beautiful tribute to a brave, beautiful woman.

RIP Farrah

Thank you Lisa for finding our beloved Farrah.Also for spending some time with her,and for letting me see her beautifull flowers.As an English Farrah fan of all her films and Charlies Angels,in England her death didnt get any news.well done Lisa.

god took a very beauitful lad home she was a very sweet person to know she love everyone she meet and she love doing her movies and be on tv to she will be misses by everyone she new and loved she love her family very much and her friends to. may god be with the family and her friends and the fans to....

I went to Westwood last week. I came from Germany to pay respekt and touch the ground with an affectionate pat.

I could´t find flowers on the grave.

Thanks for all Farrah.

RIP Farrah

Thanks Lisa for documenting Farrah's final resting place. I agree with you. Our burial is our final documentation of our existance on this planet. It should be noted and held in memory for family, friends, & all those who love & care.

Documenting our families gravesite was a must for my cousin & I. She died unexpectantly (& much too soon) not too long ago and on that cold, rainy day, I had to return & take the final pictures. I know someday, her children will be glad they have them to remember that day.

Thank you....NJ

To dream the impossible dream
To fight the unbeatable foe
To bear with unbearable sorrow
To run where the brave dare not go
To right the unrightable wrong
To love pure and chaste from afar
To try when your arms are too weary
To reach the unreachable star
This is my quest
To follow that star
No matter how hopeless
No matter how far
To fight for the right
Without question or pause
To be willing to march into Hell
For a heavenly cause
And I know if I'll only be true
To this glorious quest
That my heart will lie peaceful and calm
When I'm laid to my rest
And the world will be better for this
That one woman, scorned & covered with scars
Still strove with her last ounce of courage
To reach the unreachable, the unreachable, the unreachable star
And ill always dream the impossible dream
Yes & ill always reach the unreachable star
This is a tribute to Farrah Fawcett & her courageous fight, insatiable spirit, and her unselfish compassion for others. God allowed us here on earth a special opportunity within our lifetimes to see up close one of his angels. Farah, you have touched our hearts forever and will never be forgotten.

    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.
