Nan Gentry, a volunteer with the Friends and Relatives of Greenleaf, surveys the gravesite of famed author and poet Robert E. Howard Friday morning at Greenleaf Cemetery. Gentry and other volunteers welcomed visitors from as far away as San Francisco and Washington, D.C., who are in town to attend this weekend’s Robert E. Howard Days in Cross Plains. They will be on hand to greet visitors again today.
