|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
"St. Raphael can claim some of the most interesting and ornate tombs in the parish. Traditional cemetery symbolism as well as the unusual abound. Besides the elaborate Ricard mausoleum with its sculptured faces and inverted torches, there is the Sigur family tomb with an interesting iron door. Valery Hebert;s tomb is a nimiature "arc de triomphe" while Ignace Hebert, who died at 27, has tis grave marked by a large, now tilting, broken column symbolizing a life cut short."
