Lovecraft Grave Pictures from Gary Gunnels

Gary Gunnels shared these pictures with me yesterday, and said I could repost here. The first is the grave of Lovecraft himself. The next three appear to be of a family marker (you can see Lovecraft's grave - and I'm assuming his mother and father - right behind it).

The bottom line of Lovecraft's grave says "I Am Providence". Several online sources simply say that that line comes from one of his letters, but I could have sworn he got it from antiquity - I want to say Cicero for some reason. Does anyone know/remember? I can't put my finger on where I heard that.

  1. Yeah, it is basically a family plot. I have been told (I think by the staff at the graveyard - but I can't be quite sure if it was them or if I read it online) that people try to perform ceremonies there from time to time, presumably trying to raise the "Old Ones."
