Our Lady of Sorrows Church, West National Ave., in Las Vegas had a cemetery surrounding the church. Only a few of these stones are still standing in the church yard. Some have been paved over; some are piled at the grotto; some are in a pile behind the rectory, and some were moved to Mt. Calvary Cemetery. Recorded by Jean Whiting and Helen Hennon, 1981
