It Is God's Will

Better on Black

I spent December 8, 2009, my 44th birthday in Druid Ridge Cemetery, Baltimore, Maryland. It was cold, lovely and there was snow on the ground. It was perfect! Oh...and an urban legend was involved. A great birthday indeed!


Druid Ridge Cemetery is located just outside the city of Baltimore in Pikesville, Maryland at 7900 Park Heights Avenue, Baltimore Co., MD 21208. Among its monuments and graves are several noted sculptures by Hans Schuler and the final resting places of:

•Felix Agnus, Civil War general and newspaper publisher

•Alfred Blalock, pioneering cardiovascular surgeon

•Dorothy Benjamin Caruso, widow of tenor Enrico Caruso

•William Jones "Boileryard" Clarke, baseball player and coach

•Claribel Cone, physician and art collector with her sister Etta Cone

•Walter Dandy, one of the fathers of neurosurgery

•Rev. Dr. John Goucher, namesake of Goucher College

•Florence Kendall, influential physical therapist

•John Charles Linthicum, U.S. Congressman, 4th District of Maryland

•Rosa Ponselle, celebrated soprano

•Carl Vernon Sheridan, World War II Medal of Honor recipient
