Give My Love to the World
In the same plot, the double headstone of Conrad Aiken's parents is inscribed with identical dates of death for each parent, February 27, 1901, standing as a solemn reminder of the early tragedy of the poet's traumatic childhood.
Location: The Conrad Aiken Burial Site is located at Lot 78 in Section H, where Johnny Mercer Lane meets Aiken Lane.
