Tales from the grave

I just belatedly saw this message from a Deep Sky Videos viewer. It was a reaction to my video about visiting Charles Messiers' grave.

It makes me think - should we get a campaign going to have Messier's grave on the tourist maps and signs at Père Lachaise Cemetery - it seems wrong that he's overlooked!

First, please allow me to thank you for all the effort you put into creating the videos for you channels.
I am subscribed to most of them and always look forward to a new episode. 
As an amateur astronomer, I absolutely enjoy the watching your DeepSkyVideos channel.
During my visit to Paris last week, inspired by your video, I visited the grave of Charles Messier. Thanks to your video and directions in the video's description, I had no trouble locating the grave.
I even got the chance to tell a group of visitors of Chopin's grave about Charles' life and his famous catalog.
The guide didn't know about this particular grave and considers pointing it out during his regular tour. 
Thanks again, and keep up the good work!
Cheers, Dirk
