Tombstone Tuesday - Interesting Memorials

...
I've run out of my own tombstone pictures, so will post some that are "interesting" to me.



The inscription on the back of this stone says "Stan, may the force be with you." I'm guessing that Stan was a Star Wars fan, or perhaps a Yoda fan. Obviously, he died too young.

This stone is in Edinboro Cemetery in Edinboro, Erie County, Pennsylvania, USA and is on Find A Grave here.

Love it! I just drove through your ancestral Leominster on my way to a Muppet exhibit in Massachusetts http://www.londonderrynh.net/?p=20105

Love it, too! I'm almost out of my family tombstones that I've taken, so it's time for a new trip to the cemetery!

How bizarre. Not that it has Yoda on the stone, I think that's pretty cool. After all, I am a Star Wars fan (complete with tattoos, personalized license plates, and plenty of books).

No, what's bizarre is that I follow your "musings" and what pops up? A cemetery from the same town where I went to college. And upon closer inspection, I know exactly where this particular cemetery is. After all, I lived next to it for two years.

Now that's bizarre.

On a side note - he was nearly the same age as me and passed away while I was attending college there.
