Grave of Rocky's Adrian

Spoiler Alert! Here lies Adrian Balboa, fictional film wife of fictional film star Rocky Balboa. The character's granite tombstone is in a small spot off to the side at Laurel Hill Cemetery. The prop was originally made of styrofoam, but it's said that when Sylvester Stallone saw it, he said it was "tacky" and had one made of real granite instead. YO, Adrian!
