As surely as a ficus tree takes root, so does love.
A ficus at Pacific View Memorial Park & Mortuary in Corona del Mar towers 20 feet over the grave of Erwin Warshawsky, its canopy leaning slightly over the marker instead of the paved path.
Its sprawling roots underline the names of Erwin and his wife, Latife. Then the roots disappear into the dirt just past Latife’s name, which is etched next to Erwin’s in preparation for her to join him.
