Colma is a small town in the San Francisco Bay Area of Northern California. Last time I checked, the population was just under 1,500 people… if you don’t count the more than one million souls interred there in the twenty or so cemeteries it is famous for. At the beginning of the 20th Century, San Francisco first banned new cemeteries and then banished them completely. This lead to the remains of those buried in San Francisco to be relocated to Colma. So Colma is now a town full of monuments. And, as the bumper stickers and even the town’s website proudly proclaim: “It’s great to be alive in Colma.”
