    The surroundings take the beauty away from that tomb. Would have been good to use a few extra $$$ to paint up those other graves and plant a couple plants

      You realize it's a private burial ground and not a private gated community or mansion, right? Before you just comment and say something with sense or just say R.I.P ....You rather come on here with foolishness about the surrounding graves
