Are you the kind of person who wouldn’t be caught dead in a cemetery? (Sorry, I couldn’t help it.) Sure, there are a lot of people who find where the dead sleep a very disturbing place to be. Call my family crazy, but we love a good cemetery. What makes a cemetery good? Well, the mere fact that it’s been around for a while helps. Plus, there’s nothing more historical than reading the epitaphs on tombstones older than yourself. With the ability to Google names these days, it makes looking up some of the more prominent buried folks very interesting.
