A living soul has never been buried



Recently Chronicle sports writer Scott Michaux paid tribute to Robert Tyre Jones Jr., the greatest amateur golfer in history. He told of the stream of visitors who come every day - some stay all day - to Atlanta's historic Oakland Cemetery off of Memorial Drive.

He said, "He shares these six acres with about 70,000 other souls, including Gone With the Wind author Margaret Mitchell."

A living soul has never been buried and never will be. Only God takes care of the dwelling place of the soul at the time of death.
