And When I Die..........! 10/5/2006

Oakland Cemetary, what can I say. I remember going here for the funeral of my grandparents in the Old Jewish Section, along side of the founders of the great Rich's Department store empire, where I started working in the seventies while at GSU. Today the history still lives, and it's become quite a tourist destination. Beautiful, Victorian, and serene. The large stone bust of ""The Sleeping Lion of The Confederacy"", rests along side literary great Margaret Mitchell, golfing-pro Bobby Jones, and Mayors William B. Hartsfield, and Atlanta's first African-American Mayor, Maynard Jackson. Souls of slaves, poor white day labors, all lie together, with the elite of the city. A perfect place to walk through the city's history. Great also for a picnic with friends or family. My place is still waiting there, with my family, and my city's great citizens, both rich and poor. Amen! Pros: Atlanta History's Resting Place! Cons: Can't Go More Often! more
