Space alien grave.

Space Alien Buried Here

There is a large boulder at the site along with a cross. It is under a tree beneath a large bent over limb. We had no luck on Loretta, the talking Parrot, but it's a lovely peaceful graveyard, with many beautiful tombstones.

Alien grave.

We found it. It's on the right side. Off the drive to the right of the cemetery sign. There is one tree toward the front of the cemetery and two trees a little further back. It's between those two, with a large stone just to the right of the headstone. Please don't take the headstone. Just take a picture.

Unfortunately the headstone has been stolen. The grave is still there, under a tree, but it is now unmarked.

The grave marker has been stolen yet again, but with the help of an internet search I found the location. Take the last entrance into the cemetery, and just a very short way up, you'll see a large oak tree just to the right of the road with a very crooked low-hanging branch, which hangs directly over the burial site. Disappointing...but still worth a quick trip off the highway if you want a sad-face pic of yourself standing on the burial spot. Hopefully the stone will be replaced by the time you visit!

Kinda makes us wonder if the specific directions to the tombstone were posted by the same people who stole it.
