Hello Martha, I'm Robin, and it's great to see a new face. Although the movie hasn't been released yet; other members still have contributed quite a few posts on this site (as you can see)!
Wow! I don't know of any other people who've had a chance to visit the cemetery in Liverpool. Eppylover; though, does have an on-line friend who did visit last year. Was this your first trip to Liverpool? Thanks so much for the digital images. I hope one day to visit, and pay my respects as well.
I became a devoted Beatles fan in 1995, when the ABC network aired "The Beatles Anthology." I saw Ringo in concert last July, and also saw the Cirque De Soleil production of "Love" last June in Las Vegas.
As for Brian; I only learned about HIS devotion a couple years ago. You're right; it's so wrong for his contributions to be ignored & unappreciated. I really hope this upcoming film will finally bring Eppy the acknowledgment he deserves.
I didn't quite know what you meant by the 'translation' on Brian's grave. Do you mean the Hebrew writing? Eppylover may be able to tell you.
Again Martha; welcome here. ;D
Hi Robin!! Haha, yes, I meant the Hebrew writing! As for the pictures, I took about 30!!! (just in Brian's.....about 300 more in Liverpool) ;D It was the first time I was visiting Liverpool and I will come back for sure! Every Beatle lover should go there at least once! I'm dying to see the "Love" musical in Las Vegas!!! but I just can't find anyone who wants to travel that far with me!
Martha, Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. I'm still in awe over those photos! Thanks so much also for describing what it's like to be next to Brian. Hopefully; I can visit England in the distant future, and I'll be able to afford it!
Eppylover has a entry/post on her Live Journal page, which translates the Hebrew writing on the tombstone. Oh yes; and if only we could have heard Eppy speaking in Hebrew! eppylover.livejournal.com/90490.html
And now; I need to think about posting some more...

Thank you for providing the link to the Hebrew translation of Brian Epstein's tombstone. I am glad Eppylover provided this very important information on her LiveJournal website and was, eventually, shared here.
Just to let you know, the LiveJournal community you mentioned, mrbrianepstein, is not mine. It was created and is moderated by Van Donovan from Riverside, CA. I posted a lot of stuff to it before I was persuaded to start my own communities.
