I recently visited Dad’s grave, which now has the headstone mounted, following the appropriate ‘settling time’. It is a wonderful black granite stone, with gold lettering, a tractor motif and a cameo photo. It was chosen by all three of us – Mum, my sister and myself.
The motif was a standard on this design, and felt very appropriate, given Dad’s farming heritage, and particularly the plough. This was a scene we often viewed when he was occupied nearby.
There were two standard flower pots, but a small addition has been installed, for the grandchildren.
I think you’ll agree, a very fitting memorial …
