The unlikely couple, a septuagenarian wearing a navy and tan Padres cap and a bespectacled hipster in his twenties, walked to the base of an old pepper tree, long green strands of lady finger leaves drooping from its lower branches. The older man backed up a few steps and opened the hardcover book he was carrying and began thumbing through the pages. He settled on a page of black and white photos with text running between them. He held the book up and alternated his glance between it and the pepper tree. I'd say the headstone was right about here.
