Odd Headstone

Found this jewel in Glouster,Va.

Seems the husband died at age 45. Did the husband request the wording at leaving so soon or the wife at his passing away so young?

    Very honest. It must be fairly new? When?

    Seen in a discussion of the group "Graves, Tombs And Cemeteries" (?)

    actually this my husbands. he died expectedly in 12/07 at age 50. my daughter designed this tombstone. the "wells this sucks" comes from the movie "magascar" it was a line from one of the penguins & my husband thought it was very funny! my daughter stumbled upon this picture of it in the odd headstone--what an honor! thank you who ever place this picture in here chuck would have been pleased & it made my daughter's day.

    Jessica, I'm very sorry for your loss. The fact that your daughter chose this for his headstone says so much about your husband's sense of humor. I think that's a beautiful and touching way to remember him. I have two children and it means a lot to me to think of my sense of humor still making them laugh one day after I'm gone.

    I have a Tumblr blog of interesting and unusual tombstones. I shared Gina's great photo there (giving credit to Gina as the creator and owner of the image, along with a clear link to this page, of course!), and it seems to have struck a cord with a lot of people there as well. It has received over 57,000 notes with the number still growing. I hope it offers at least a small amount of comfort to that this memorial seems to touch something in so many people.
