Holt Cemetery, Louisiana, New Orleans.

I received this email and the attached pictures recently, for which I am very grateful. All caps, shouty, I like it. Thank you Krista Jurisich!

“THIS IS MY FAVORITE CEMETERY TO VISIT

HOLT CEMETERY IN NEW ORLEANS LA. / OFF THE GENTILLY RIDGE NEAR BAYOU ST. JOHN

THE PRACTICE HERE IS THAT YOU MAY BURY YOUR LOVED ONES AT NO CHARGE, ANYWHERE YOU CAN FIND A SPOT, AND FOR AS LONG AS YOU MAINTAIN YOUR PLOT. THIS IS A VERY OLD AFRICIAN AMERICAN CEMETERY AND IT IS ALWAYS A WORK IN PROGRESS / WHICH IS WHY I LOVE IT SO! MANY JAZZ GREAT HAVE BEEN BURIED HERE AND THE SPOTS HAVE BEEN LONG LOST. IT HAS A WELCOMING AND LOVING VIBE.”
