The dead walked again as Save Austin Cemeteries staged a spirited tribute in Austin’s Oakwood Cemetery. Characters hauntingly familiar to us walked the grounds of the picturesque memorial to the people who came before us. A famous general, a prominent German businessman, and Susannah Dickinson, the famous survivor of the Alamo shared their stories and troubles before fading back into the scenic lands they forever call home. It’s not often you have the opportunity to address a Texas legend, but I did, as I had the honor of speaking about the famous trees of Texas on this historic day. Save Texas Cemeteries is committed to preserving our history that literally lies all around us. Everyone passes on, but thanks to organizations like this one, our history lives forever.
