This pyramid-shaped mausoleum is part of the small Brand Family Cemetery. The following inscription is on the face of the pyramid:


AH, GENTLE, FLEETING, WAV'RING SPRITE
FRIEND AND ASSOCIATE OF THIS CLAY,
TO WHAT UNKNOWN REGION BORNE,
WILT THOU, NOW, WING THY DISTANT FLIGHT?


Directions: 1601 West Mountain St, Glendale, California. From the parking lot at Brand Park, walk up the fire access road (Brand Park Dr, unsigned) past the Doctor's House Museum. 0.3 mile from the Doctor's House Museum, just past the reservoir, turn left (north) into a dirt lot; the cemetery with the pyramid is accessed by a staircase at the north end of this lot. GPS coordinates of the pyramid are 34.18736, -118.27503. The pyramid is behind a locked fence but is easily visible through the fence.
