The Hollywood Cemetery is home to some unusual markers.
Whether ornate or bare, many of the markers tell the role of the person in the family. Daughter, wife, mother. Most often the word “beloved” is also carved in the granite. That’s fine, but I love when the family goes beyond “Beloved mother” and describes something else about the person. This woman died young, with an “Unfinished Agenda.”
Cemeteries are a good place to think about our lives and how we might like to be described in the minds and hearts of those we love.
How about you? If you could chose one word to be known by, what would it be?
