I agree with Bob. Very cool!

Who is the stone for? The image in the top right side looks like a frog? What does the writing on the left say?

Just curious.

A frog? :G Now you're just messin' with me.

Seriously though, I think it's two people hugging. I don't remember what the stone says but it's close to home so I'll get over there and find out.

Seriously, the image looked like a frog face to me. I'm sure it's not. That's why I was asking what it was. I didn't mean any disrespect to the person who's stone it is. I downloaded it and tried zooming in on it in PSE and I see a different image now. It's just such a small part of the image it's hard to see.

Thanks, Bill. You didn't have to run over there tonight.

Now, knowing what it is, I can see the correct image in the original photo. It's one of those optical illusions. Once you "see" a specific image, it's hard to get it out of your mind. I have no idea what made me see a frog. On a different monitor it probably would have looked different to me.

This is a very nice memorial. It seems that the hugging people are Jesus and the person who is now joining him. And, a very lovely poem to go with it. Thanks for sharing.

Excellent photos, Bill. I think you win the prize for the most grave marker photos. There is one more day if you have any more!

Great photo. The person must have been a very good and loved person to have received such a tribute.
