Son, Ernest (Ernie) recalls that his dad, Arden Ernest Holliday, died from stomach cancer. He was buried in the old Sunnyside Cemetery on Willow Street in Long Beach, CA. Years later, Ernie decided to find his father's grave. Oddly, the unmarked grave was found to be along side the now paved road through the cemetery at an angle so that the foot of the grave is actually under the pavement. Ernie had a burial marker placed on his fathers grave.

Years later when his mother, Laura Johnson Holliday died, he had her cremated and under the darkness of night, removed the flower container from his fathers grave and placed her ashes there.

In 1991, Ernie's son, Ernest Dan died. He was buried in the same cemetery and Ernie had the memorial park owner have Laura's name inscribed on the marker of his father.

At the time of Dan's death. Ernie realized the family would not cremate either he or Margaret, so they purchased a plot for their one day burial. Ernie died in 1999 from a heart attack.
