History Lesson:
In my hunt to make sure I have correct dates, I found a website called Find a Grave.com. It has famous and non-famous graves. It is a great place to visit a grave on the other side of the country. It is also interesting to see the finally resting place for famous people. So go on and visit Jean Harlow's grave and leave flowers for her birthday.
