The stars of entertainment enjoy their time in the spotlight and when famous people die, it seems like a part of us dies with them, especially when they “leave” too early. The list of those whose lives shined bright but were gone too soon is long. It includes names like John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Jimi Hendrix, James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Anna Nicole Smith, Hank Williams, Natalie Wood, John Candy, Whitney Houston, Janis Joplin, Mama Cass Elliott, Karen Carpenter, Bob Crane, Brynn Hartman, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Buddy Holly, John Ritter and Christopher Lee.  The public honors well known entertainers they may never have met by visiting their grave sites after they have passed. Two of the best places for “seeing stars” in spirit are located in Los Angeles area, as you might guess.  See where famous celebs are buried in L.A. so you can visit their graves!
