The Mount Olivet Cemetery in Hugo, Oklahoma has a section called Showmen’s Rest where a number of circus performers and professionals are buried. The area is set off by several pillars that state “Showmen’s Rest” with an elephant atop each of them.
Many of the tombstones depict some phrase that would indicate their love and enjoyment of the life they lived as a part of the circus world. One sentiment I particularly liked was this one:
How wonderful to live a life bringing joy, laughter and happiness everywhere you went – so much so that you would wish for everyone that all their days could be lived as fully and joyfully as this sentiment expresses.
