I left him some oranges, incense & gave a little prayer!
  • I can here to see Bruce Lee.... what a beautiful tombstone. .. I felt at peace just thinking how people love this man still to set fresh flowers on his grave
  • Bruce lee the man the myth the legend this was a bucket list for me to visit in Seattle I was taken back a little because Bruce lee was a big part of my growing up films the master his self. I paid my respects to Bruce lee and Brandon rip
  • I visited Bruce and his son a few times, I was even there after someone stole their headstones, no respect. I wonder if they ever caught the scum ?
  • A legend is under these grounds. This is amazing, so happy I drove here from Lakewood. Totally worth it, Bruce Lee and his Son are very missed.
