So much talent the world has lost, and much of it is buried here. Worth visiting to pay respects. Marilyn Monroe and many more.

Don, Knotts, Marilyn Monroe, Rodney Dangerfield ("There goes the neighborhood"), Jack Lemmon (my favorite) - many celebrities and interesting quips on their tombstones but also many moving immigrant stories told.

You can pay your respects to Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Dean Martin, Natalie Wood, Farrah Fawcett, and Roy Orbison, and, of course, Marilyn Monroe. But a couple of people passed through here without burial. Gene Kelly was cremated here and ashes scattered at sea, as...More
