Frankie Lymon Tombstone BBQ
Elmwood Park, NJ
July 22, 2012
Earlier this year we assisted Pam Nardella in her efforts to
rescue the Frankie Lymon tombstone from the window of the now closed Ronnie
I's Clifton Music store and relocate it in her garden in Elmwood Park, NJ.
(We've previously documented the moving of the gravestone on this website.
Lymon's Gravestone Finds A New Home. The story was also
covered in an issue of Weird NJ magazine.
To celebrate the relocation of the tombstone,
Pam Nardella held a backyard BBQ on July 22, 2012 and invited many of her
music friends. It was a beautiful day and we enjoyed the company good
friends and great food. We also got to see the Frankie Lymon tombstone
in it's new home. Thank you, Pam Nardella.
