As we were leaving, my friend Naga talked about a well known grave stone in the cemetery with a dog sculpture . Soon we came across this site and the dog looked very real. The story which is passed on is that, after the death of the Andrew in 1931, his pet refused to leave the grave stone and didn't eat and died within days . So to honour the pet , Andrew's family placed a replica of the dog on the grave stone.

Western Cemetery, Penang
One of the places my father wanted to visit was the Western Cemetery in Penang . So we went to pay our respect to my father's mother, an elder brother William who died as a teenager and a sister Joyce who died as an one year old, all of whom were buried there. It was a rainy day and Appa related stories of their lives.
