That is quite a monument to him. Nice to see he is in his family plot.

Dear Graveyard Lover,

we are "Grateful Cat" from Berlin and we just finished our new video "Postcard from the Graveyard" - with Graves and a Ghost in it.
So we thought we send it out to people who are interested in this subject or work at cemeteries.
If you like it, maybe you share it with some friends or even post it somewhere.

Greetings from Berlin,
Gwendolin and Franky

I’m glad to see such a lovely monument. He made me smile when I finally had some time off in such a long, dreary time.
