Reminders in the Cemetery

"When I tell people that I love cemeteries, I usually get a few responses…one of which includes looking at me like I am a little off my rocker. I know that part of it is the history major in me, which is fascinated by the people and dates that you encounter wandering in the peaceful silence amongst forgotten headstones. Who would ever imagine that an Italian princess is buried in the Catholic cemetery of Nashville? Or the mathematician who mapped out an emergency rescue orbit that was used to save the astronauts of Apollo 13? The stories, legends, mistakes, and lessons that rest in cemeteries draw me there."
