    Perhaps one of her cakes is under that stone or something.
  • Robin McMorran 5y

    She was probably a greengrocer before she died.

    Heh heh

    Oh, that's eternally horrible.
  • Clive Andrews 5y

    So awful it's wonderful. This takes apostrophe crime to a whole new level.
  • Dave Elmore 5y

    Damned for eternity... well, the monument is anyway.

    BTW: there's also a typo in one of your tags.

    This hurts to look at. How could no one catch this??
  • Melita Dennett 5y

    I really don't know!! And how could the relatives allow it to be planted? Weird there's no name either.

    Also odd that there are no dates. Maybe it's a dead baby?

    Oups....

    Obviously, Mother was the carver of that headstone!
  • Melita Dennett 5y

    Brilliant! You've solved the puzzle!

    Actually, it may be correct since it reads "One of the best of mother's", as in one of the best things that mother ever did. Or something like that. Still pretty enigmatic even if it isn't a grocer's apostrophe, what with no name and all.
  • Canardo 5y

    Actually, as noted above, it's apostrophe crime. Too bad we don't have a view of the other side - probably the details are over there.
  • davekpcv 5y

    ouch
  • Anne Roberts 5y

    Oh no - you can't even erase it!

    *must remember to proof read any memorial BEFORE I die*
  • Melita Dennett 5y

    @pondspider - ha ha! Good idea
