It's just like extra banking fees, they have to screw you to the last moment.

Thanx for sharing this Nate ;

I know you had a horrible loss but this info is very good for those of us who don't have much $ .

A few years after my ex Wife bugged out her Mother died and the cematary's sales guy had them signed up for a $20,000.00 burial and he worthless idiot Brother added every single thing the sales guy suggested and left her holding the bag .

I out a stop to that B.S. pronto before they could begin .

That's beautiful stone .

Sent Legacy an email on how the pictures are done, thank you for the information.

The marker for my great grandmother had a set in picture. Cemetery claimed they didn't mow over the markers, but sure enough, they do and knocked it out and shattered it.

Sadly we just lost Oma, who been more than upset about it since it happened all those years ago. But, this gives an opportunity to do something for Oma, especially since no service for her (Dad can't handle it emotionally).

That looks very nice. With all the engraving and such the price seems very good too. This is something excellent you are doing in memory of your daughter.
