Did you know there’s a cemetery at University Dr. and Research Park Boulevard? It even has a name. It’s called East Cemetery. I noticed a headstone or two sitting in traffic one day, and assumed no more than a few graves were there. Actually dozens rest here.
There are several acres. It’s deceptively large.
Here is a couple who’s been here almost exactly 100 years.
Here is a World War I veteran who lived to see the end of World War II.
I figured most folks would have been here a good while, but here is someone who was buried as recently as 2009.
It was an intriguing and reflective stop ahead of meeting Melanie for lunch today.
