  • To find the secret of death is to seek it in the heart of life. A owl whose night bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light. Open your heart into the body of life; then shall you find the spirit of death, for life and death are one. The fear of death is the trembling of a shepherd when he stands before the King whose hand is to be laid upon him in Honour. To stand naked in the wind and free the breath from its restless tide so it may rise and expand and seek God unencumbered. Love is truly known!
  • Beautiful cemetery, grounds are well kept, although several tombs have fallen into disrepair. Fireman's section in front and some extremely ornate tombs. Right off the streetcar line so there is usually people wandering around.
