Well, this answers my question.
Thank you to those of you more adept and knowlegeable on the subject, for helping out, and letting us know the score.
I guess life in Middle-earth wasn't a bowl of cherries for everyone.
and they buried him in a mound of stones beside the high pass;
and a green turf came there,
and yellow flowers bloomed upon it amid the barrenness of stone,
until the world was changed.
