STORY OPPORTUNITIES
 
Forest Lawn Memorial-Park's flagship location in Glendale, CA is so much more than a cemetery. The originator of the "memorial-park" concept, many others have followed suit in creating a location that draws visitors there to both pay their respects and admire the incredible art and architecture housed there as well. And this is just one of many reasons why so many of Hollywood's elite - Lucille Ball, Walt Disney, Carrie Fisher and more - have been laid to rest in this stunning piece of the fabric of Southern California. Just in time for Halloween, connect with John F. Llewellyn, former President and CEO of Forest Lawn Memorial-Parks & Mortuaries and author of the new book BIRTH OF A CEMETERY, which tells the rich history of how this cemetery and the concept above came to be. For interviews and information.  Contact: John Smith  (555) 555-5555.
