  1. Thanks for letting me know there will be a memorial at Evergreen, this year. The people buried there are my heroes, too. I grew up in the Crenshaw/ West Adams district. My nephew’s grandmother was a War Bride. The Jomon and other ancients married into our Cherokee tribe. I remember Grace’s Pastries, and Tom and Maggie’s florist shop at the funeral home where Dad worked. Their son, Tony, played golf for UCLA, my school too. The naughty kids used to call themselves:”Buddah head/spooks”…no difference between us.
