I have photos of another cemetery where some Jesuit colleagues are buried; its unique aspect is that all the headstones are the same size, like soldiers "in serried ranks assembled." No distinctions; in death, we are all alike. I will go hunt for them.

I will also hunt for photos of oysters. To be explained...

Cemeteries make me sad, but I try to visit the Los Angeles National Cemetary at least once a year to pay my respects to the men and women who have sacrificed and gone before. Recently though I was making my way through Utah and came across a famous cemetery of the early Mormons. It was interesting to see how young people passed back then and why.

Oysters, now I'm curious! S-

Sorta like the reverse of reading the obits and not finding your name. Matt
