Thats a very strange parking place. As joke okay. As grave I don't know.

She must have had a lot of humor indeed, so have her children. You have to put coins in visiting her grave?
Your text is very funny, it must be an exciting place overthere, a lot is going on ha,ha.

Hmmm. I guess someone has an odd sense of humour and likes/liked to make people smile.

The meter is a very tacky piece but the meaning is most appropriate

i wish our small town would go back to those kinds of police reports (instead of our county DA and his wife murdered in their home - 2 mos. after an asst. DA was murdered on his way into the courthouse) *sigh*

anyway, i LOVE that humor!

This lady must have been hilarious. What a great find.

As a retired funeral director and one who loves to roam through old cemeteries, I found great humor in this headstone.

I love the cemetery adornment. Anyone who can laugh at death has an exceptional sense of humor.
What a great newspaper story and followup! If only all our crimes could be resolved so easily.

What a great idea!

That's funny! I don't think they'd allow that in our cemeteries here in the SF Bay Area...too many restrictions. Love the police reports from small towns. They're always very entertaining!

So why is there a parking meter on this tombstone. Was the person a meter officer I wonder?
