There is an obelisk to mark the grave of Mrs. Moriarity engraved with "Faith, Hope, Charity" for Mrs. Moriarity (it rymes) Another sarcophigas is for Mr. Lacoste (another ryme) "Buck buck bucket he kicked the bucket old man Lacoste is dead bum bum". Little risk of offense as these memorials are very old. I drove by them growing up and sing the same to my kids now when we visit. My dad is buried here too. Parklike atmosphere with truly incredible statuary etc. A must see. This graveyard is safe unlike some in New Olreans.
