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.
