I visit because a loved one is there. She has a good view of the Tour Eiffel. Famous composers, Faure and Debussy, perfumer magnate, Jean Patou, and many well-known French share her space.

We wandered through these grounds focusing particularly on musicians and composers, and found the wandering peaceful and emotional when we recognized a particular grave. Often a recording would come back to me with tremendous power. The grounds ae very beautiful.
