Enjoyed seeing the things that people have left on Buddy's gravesite. Interesting to note that Buddy's real name was spelled "Holley" as indicated on the grave stone, but his stage name was "Holly." My grandparents, aunts and uncles are buried in the same cemetery, not too far away.

If you are a fan of the late Buddy Holly then going to the cemetery to sed wherd he is buried will put a nice end to his story. Easy to find and well signed.

I just wanted to visit his burial site. It is not far from the Buddy Holly Center. The cemetery did a good job of putting up signage so you can easily find his plot, very close to the front as you drive in.

Very nice quiet place for reflecting on the past and our not-too-distant future. Visit Buddy and thank him for what he did for you, and thank Mr. and Mrs. Holley of giving us Buddy.

We found Buddy Holly's grave. It is very subtle and hard to find. But, it is worth the effort to see what people have left for him.

After visiting the Buddy Holly Center, we went to his nearby final resting place. It is a must for Buddy Holly fans. The more you know about Buddy Holly, either through your own experiences and memories, or by reading the vast amount of information online about his career and tragic death, the more it will mean to you to stand...
