Tranquil beauty with statues that are difficult to find in Texas in any cemetery. It is like a park. It is a park !! I was so excited to stumble across the burial place of Gene Tierney and Howard Hughes.
Absolutely gorgeous place! The granite art and stonework along with the landscaping was just beautiful. Well worth visiting. We wished we had allowed more time for this.
