Happy Valentine's Day - Southern California Noir-Style

Novelist and screenwriter Raymond Chandler and his wife were reunited in death today, 50 years after the fact, thanks to a couple of really dedicated Chandler fans:
Then, last year, two Chandler fans from Malibu, Loren Latker and his wife, Annie Thiel, found references from the author hinting that he wished to be buried alongside his wife. They successively petitioned San Diego Superior Court for permission to have Cissy's remains buried in the grave of her husband. Seeing no opposition, the judge agreed, and on Monday over 100 people attended the reburial ceremony.
Well done, Loren and Annie.
