    Not to be morbid, but I’ve often thought I’d like a tombstone like that for myself once I shuffle off this mortal coil. Really love the old style, but I’ve never found a company that produces new “old” stones like this. Anyway, I certainly enjoy your blog. Great photos, good work!

  2. Jabez, that is an old name that seems not to have survived the 1800s.
