The Ultimate Acceptance

Clark Gable (1901-1960) was married five times. Marriages one, two and four ended in divorce. His third wife, in 1939, was Carole Lombard who was killed in a 'plane crash while on War work. Apparently, his devastation was considerable and there is little doubt that he had been happiest with her. When he died still married to Kay Williams in 1960 (the fiftieth anniversary of his death is on 16th November 2010), she showed incredible understanding and acceptance in entombing him next to Carole Lombard in Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery; although she later had herself (buried as Kathleen Gable), stowed away near by. Elizabeth Peters (mentioned on the photograph), was Carole Lombard's mother who was also killed in the crash. Left click to enlarge the photograph.
