Rant before the Good Times

I know I just got home and I should be thinking good thoughts and posted wonderful con pics and I will. But before that I must get this off my chest. My hubbie, daughter and I visited his mom grave on the way to our destination. Daughter and I do this every year before going to the anime con. First it was to visit her and her husband and then to visit their graves. Yea, I said graves. If some of you remember back to the fall of 08 my mother-in-law and her husband died less than a week apart and were buried together. Last year when daughter and I visited the grave site there was no stone or marker but there was a freshly sodded grave quite close to the spot. The care taker walked us all around and insisted that we were mistaken about the location but we knew better. He found out that a stone had been ordered but held up for some reason. He promised to check on it but apparently did nothing. We arrived on Friday to find no stone at their spot and a new stone on the spot next to theirs. I had horrible thoughts for a few moments that they had buried someone else in their spot. What was even worse was that the date on the stone wasn't even recent. The person died in 95. *shakes head* Anyway we talked to the woman who had performed the original funeral. She remembers it because of the unusual circumstances. She promptly found all the paperwork and had hubbie sign the documents releasing the head stone and promised to call us when it was completed. She also had a maintenance man go out and flag the spot so we could place flowers. It was exactly where we thought it was. That at least gave some comfort. How can these things drag on like this and nothing gets done. I mean 2 years! *sighs*

I plan to keep a closer eye on this one and call the woman if she doesn't call me. I also plan to ask her to take a picture of the stone when it is placed and email me a copy. I don't want to wait another year to see if it gets done.

My next post will be much sunnier with pics of weird and beautiful costumes and happy events. Okay!?

That's absolutely dreadful that it's been so long without a headstone on the grave. I'd be very upset and angry too. I think you're perfectly within your rights to request a photo of the headstone in place too. After all the mucking about that's gone on, I would think they should be surprised if you didn't ask for a photo.

Me too. This has gone on way too long. It's very disconsorting to go out there and put flowers on the ground where we think it might be. After all this I'm going to make sure there is a proper flower vase too. Hubbie's mom loved flowers and I can't see her without them.
