This May 18, 2010 photo shows historian Loren Latker posing with his collection of photographic memorabilia of Los Angeles' Raymond Chandler at his home in the Marina del Rey area of Los Angeles. Chandler wanted to be buried next to his beloved wife, Cissy. That they would end up about a block apart, one in a cemetery, the other on a mausoleum warehouse shelf, is a tale with many twists. But thanks to a court order this month, expect a very un-Chandler-like happy ending. The two will be reunited during a scheduled celebration next Valentine's Day at the writer's grave in San Diego's Mount Hope Cemetery. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
