An impressive number of letters have been printed in the Travel section about cemeteries. You’ve thoughtfully revealed something poignant that resonates within us all, with one bizarre exception: pet cemeteries. There’s one in nearly every large city now, including in Gardena. Pet Haven contains a minitombstone of someone’s pet goldfish amid countless other interesting animal final-resting sites. During Christmas a surprising number of graves are elaborately decorated. Truly a must-see in its quirky uniqueness. KYLE KIMBRELL

While in South Florida in January, we visited the Key West Cemetery and found one of its most famous epitaphs engraved on a tombstone. It was scripted on B.P. “Pearl” Roberts’ (1929-79): “I told you I was sick.”
Goes to show that there is humor even in death.
