      I once visited the crypt under St. Stephens Cathedral in Vienna--it was even creepier than this one. This looks so tidy. I don't think I'd like the job of caretaker, sitting in that chair all day long. . .

      And each one once was a soul that carressed this earth
      with love and presence and life... how wonderful it would
      have been to have known just one of them or all of them
      and shared in their triumphs and tragedies as they made
      their walk through life upon this earth... blessings to
      those descendants who belong to them and live today!!!
