I went on the fabulous Dearly Departed Tour again this weekend, and as usual, it was amazing! My Mom, Judy, and I headed out to Hollywood to do a little sightseeing. Our first stop? Hollywood Forever Cemetery (formally known as Hollywood Memorial Park).
The cemetery was absolutely gorgeous and so serene. I could not believe I was in a cemetery. There are so many famous people laid to rest here, that it would take pages to list them. There were a few people we wanted to see, including Marion Davies, Tyrone Power, Rodolfo Valentino, Johnny Ramone, etc.
Then we headed over to Farmer's Market to start the tour. Once again, the tour proved to be informative. If you haven't taken any of Scott Michaels tours, you must! Here are some pics of the cemetery and the tour. Hope you had a great weekend friends. I am a little behind this week on comments, so bear with me!
