We found this rather curious grave marker at the Angelus Rosedale Cemetery.  If you look closely, you will see that each exposed side names a different Summers.  There are a few more markers at Angelus Rosedale that feature this curious style of identification.

Angelus Rosedale was the first cemetery in Los Angeles to accept African-Americans when Oscar-winning actress Hattie McDaniel was put to rest there.  It has some absolutely amazing statuary and grave markers.  The marker included here was more than a little eye-catching.

The deep reddish brown stone was stained with age.  I’m seriously considering coming by at another time with some clean soft rags and some water to give it a good cleaning.  It appears it’s been ignored for quite some time now.
