Being full blooded Crowley. I’d like to say way to go to the Crowley family staying strong on burial grounds. If it were any other race they wouldn’t have let anyone build around the sacred ground. As it should be. We Crowley’s are stubborn like that. Lol

Oh come on. I know the real story. I’m an off-shoot of the Hill side of the family, believe it or not. The Crowley side was holding out for more money and the developers basically said “F you” and built a mausoleum around the graves.

04/15/21 - Trees have grown around the mausoleum. The stairs to the top are locked so you can only view the brick structure, which is itself covered in graffiti and surrounded with detritus from encampments. When I was there a COVID immunization station was set up just 20 yards away.

Thanks for sharing the truth otherwise so many people would have been in a false thought.
