Show us something that is lost, but not forgotten.
For this challenge, Annie visited the cemetery where Al Capone is buried. Near Roosevelt & Wolf Rd, here in Chicagoland.
It is still visited daily, and as you can see, people still leave small memorial items in Al’s memory. Apparently being a mobster is your ticket to immortality. Who knew?
One of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre victims is buried in the same cemetery, but she couldn’t find it. It would provide a fun contrast, but probably needs too much explanation.

Hello, fellow Chicagoan (although we’re in Naperville.) I didn’t realize Al was buried here. May have to look him up when it warms up.
Well, he certainly isn’t going anywhere. :snerk: Ok, that joke was evil.
