Blow out your candles, Laura…

Here’s another picture from last weekend’s trip to Calvary Cemetery.

This is the grave of Rose, Tennessee Williams’ beloved sister. She was the inspiration for Laura in his play Glass Menagerie. The quote on her stone is the last line of the play.

Poor Rose suffered from schizophrenia and her parents approved a frontal lobotomy, so poor Rose remained institutionalized for almost all of her adult life.

Dear Rose, you are always in my thoughts.
