Katrina Here Lies Vera

In this Sept. 4, 2005, file photo, a makeshift tomb at a New Orleans street corner conceals a body that had been lying on the sidewalk for days in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The message reads, “Here lies Vera. God help us.” Smith’s cremated remains were later reburied in Texas, yet she remains part of her old community. (AP Photo/Dave Martin, File)
