I am so glad we were able to stop. The site os amazing and the cemetery is beautiful. There are 2 marble benches so you can sit awhile. Well worth the stop. The markers are amazingly detailed.

Hard to believe he was only 29 when he passed. A very dignified resting place for Hank, his wife and other family members. There was no one else there when we visited- made for a soulful visit

The gravesite itself has very beautiful monuments that are for both Hank and Audrey, but the astro turf surrounding it is quiet gaudy. I feel the reason it was put down was to keep the grass from wearing around the actual grave due to visitors,...More
