Bio and Links
Bio Photo Taphophilia (a passion and enjoyment of cemeteries) has been my main hobby since the late 1970's when I was a junior in high school. I discovered that cemeteries in and around Los Angeles were the best places to hide from truant officers. It was in these adopted sanctuaries that I began to appreciate my surroundings: the grounds, the headstones, the architecture, the artwork and most importantly, the residents.

In October of 2010, I founded The Traveling Taphophiles, a group that sets out once a month to visit cemeteries. Our travels have taken us as far as New Orleans. I'm fortunate to have met others that share my hobby and to have forged some great friendships along the way.

Once photos have been posted, feel free to use them as you wish - photo credit isn't necessary.

Happy Graving ~

Louis DuMort

RE: Lauren Bacall
I'm glad to hear of the correction and inclusion of her first movie "To Have and Have Not" with soon to be husband Humphrey Bogart. Forget Pitt and Jolie. Bogie and Betty were "The Couple" in their day.

Lovely biography of the great Lauren Bacall! Beautifully written. She went to school with my aunt Celeste, who adored her. Thank you!

James Garner
I appreciate your memorial for James Garner. Quite often I hear of a famous death and I will check Find A Grave. I read the bio and often learn something I did not know. Find A Grave is full of people who will fuss and snipe for want of a better description, ignore them. You are performing a service. I have told 4 other people they had duplicates to Mr. Garner; 3 argued with me!
Thanks!
