A fellow came along and we got talking about the cemetery and others in the
area. This guy I had seen in the distance visiting a grave and he drove
over to where I was. We talked a good half hour and he did give me a lead on
the next cemetery that wasn't on the map. Before he took off he had told me
he was a State Police Investigator. As he seemed like a very regular guy I
had told him what I usually give as an answer to Cops, sheriffs and State
Police in general when I am asked in cemeteries what I'm up
to.............. "Taking Inventory", he laughed, he liked that answer.
