  • It's a beautiful place. When your there for a loved ones service its hard to say what a great experience. It's an expensive experience that's for sure. Even when prepaid something always Serbs to come up.
  • Interesting cemetery visit. The graves of Frank Sinatra and Barbara Sinatra were easy to find. The grave stones are all flat and fairly plain.
