Headstone Gratification

I am not nearly as upset over the headstone anymore for several reasons.

First of all, the birth and death dates are on it. When I saw it the first time they had been covered by flowers people had brought up to the graves. Secondly, the paint is not running. What I thought had been running paint is actually darker dirt that had been knocked onto the headstone by rain. Thirdly, my parents aren't finished with it yet. They are going to be changing some of it as soon as they can get it done.

I was also pleased to hear that my parents didn't like the dirty white color, either. They had been assuming it would be a darker color.

I still think that the thing looks a little tacky, though.
