This might be your best one yet!You have me hooked!And I'm not even "into" the celebrity thing!

You haven't mentioned anything further about whether FF's gravestone has been engraved. Funny thing, I just got on Google News, and, lo and behold, the marble plaque is already at Ted Kennedy's feet (above ground of course,) with his name, dob and dod on it. I guess FF is going to end up as one of your "No Name" candidates. I do feel for her Dad, though. He lost his wife and both daughters to cancer. That is a lot for one man to bear.

  • 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.

    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.
