Levon Helm's Woodstock, NY gravesite.

From Jan Hoiberg (webmaster of The Band website) during his June 2012 visit from Norway to Woodstock, NY:

"Just as we laid down this rose Muddy turned up at his master´s grave with the guy who rebuilt the Barn. A moment to remember. Afterwards we went up to the Buddhist monastery on Overlook Mountain, lighting a candle for Levon and reading some of the memorial cards from family and friends in the shrine."
