Yorba Linda, California

Focus on Presidential Grave Sites ~ Richard Nixon:  Buried  to President Nixon's left is the First Lady, Pat Nixon (who was never referred to as Patricia, nor was it her name!). She spent eight years as wife of the American Vice-President and eight years as wife of the the President: a fifth of her life. Chosen for his headstone: "Even when people can't speak your language, they can tell if you have love in your heart." That seems entirely appropriate for one of the most internationally traveled First Ladies, who was sometimes called "Madame Ambassador." [2016]
