Christmas Poinsettias For Dead People, 2013 Edition

Sugar said that his mother always took flowers to the cemetery for Easter and Christmas. Lilies at Eastertime, and poinsettias for Christmas, even when the money was dear. It was something that was important to her, and she managed somehow.

Because we don’t have holiday traditions like most people, we go to the graveyards. I thought there would be tours going about the cemetery, what with families gathering for the holiday and perhaps escaping the hectic season.

We start at Bonaventure at the William Starr Basinger plot.

No tourists at all, just us, traipsing around.

We went over to see beautiful Corinne Elliott Lawton. The internet searches for her that lead people to this blog have slowed down, so perhaps the lies told about her have slowed a bit. If you are interested in reading more about her, you can do a search for her on this blog.

Hey, Corinne, I’ve got your back.

Then we drove over to Laurel Grove. Sugar places the poinsettias, then adjusts them several times. Every year, every season, every time, he fiddles with it to get it just right.

Merry Christmas to all people, living and dead.

    And so she passed through this world, like a shooting star across eternity, quickly bright, trailing light, enveloped by the dark when out of sight, impressive none the less. My Aunt Genevieve.
