Vibrant cemetery colors

March 2nd, 2013

Walking around St. Raymond's today, I noticed quite a few brightly painted headstones, each one inscribed with a Hispanic last name. According to one scholar: "Hispanic graveyards are places of color, where paints, flowers, and tiles combine to comfort the bereaved and startle the gringo". You can see photos of some more of the stones here if you're interested.
