buried but not forgotten

As everybody knows, the Seattle P-I stopped printing earlier in the month. So I keep up with the online edition, because P-I writers file stories you can’t get any other way. Today’s top headlines included one about the 209 deceased people who were cremated and buried together, under a trio of headstones, at Mount Olivet cemetery. Most of these local folks were homeless in life and their bodies went unclaimed after they died. Two were babies whose families couldn’t afford the burial costs.

When people stop writing about these folks, will anyone remember them?
