Awwww!!! LISA! So sorry to hear your lovely lil Jackpot went to heaven. And what a life of service to others! Truly Jackpot was welcomed by all the souls he helped.

Much love to you!


I'm so sorry to hear about Jackpot. I can really sympathize with you. On Saturday July 24 I had to put down my youngest Cocker Spaniel Bailey. He had cancer of the spleen and it was one of the hardest if not the hardest things I have ever had to do. There is not a day that goes by that I don't at least think of him (it's usually more like cry my eyes out, I miss him so much.I know that words don't really make it any better. Just know that I am thinking of you and your pain as well and you are in my prayers..

  • 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.
