    Very beautiful grave. My dad always decorates my mom's grave, but no matter what he puts on it, it always looks like no one cares, because the grave stone is set into the ground, horizontal like, like the way they do it in Minneapolis cemeteries. All the other gravestones in my mom's cemetery in NY are elaborate and tall and hers looks non-existent.
