I have loved visiting cemeteries since I was a child. It used to freak out my mom because she thought I was thinking about death too much but I was more curious about the lives of the people buried there. Through the years I have also been fascinated by the numerous head stones and grave markers. Please enjoy my fascination!

Update on the Gothic Chapel

The gothic "chapel" shown below is the final resting place of Frederick William Delger, often referred to as "Oakland's first millionaire." He was in the shoe business.
