TOMBSTONE OF LAWRENCE S. PEPPER - Laurel Hill Cemetery, Philadelphia, PA

Another magnificent memorial in a magnificent cemetery. I am very fortunate to live within 50 miles of Laurel Hill Cemetery and every time I visit I discover hidden treasures I had not noticed before. Mr. Pepper's tombstone is quite unique. His birth and death dates are inscribed on the circular art patterns on the side of the casket-type memorial. Below his name, I believe, is also the name of the artist of the memorial. The Angel on top is very beautiful and reminds me of some of the art we see at Bonaventure Cemetery in Savannah. A very nice, one of a kind memorial.
