A Unique Grave Site
Someone had a great sense of humor! She always used to say that when she died she wanted a parking meter on her grave that says 'Expired'. Her nephew got her one on eBay! Her grave is right by the road so everyone can see it and many people have stopped to get a chuckle.
The meter says "64 Year Time Limit" on the dial, and gives the birth and death date on the metal part in front of the dial. Today is the 67th birthday and the third anniversary of her death.
Unique! Sounds like someone I would have liked to know.
