Imagined conversation 53

on July 23, 2018

Me: I did it!

Anthony: You did what?

Me: I met with a monument person at the cemetery and she was so lovely!

Anthony: But I thought you and Ming weren’t going to bother.

Me: Yeah, but I was seduced by the ruby red granite and the idea of white lettering – all guaranteed for at least five years. Also, if I die, Ming can get the message altered quite easily to include me too, even if I am cremated.

Anthony: This sounds quite complicated, Jules. How much is this going to cost?

Me: It depends on the wording: if I just put “Anthony Goyder 1936-2017” it will be relatively cheap because you pay per each letter.

Anthony: Just do that then, Jules.

Me: No way, Ants! I am going to write our story on your tombstone.

Anthony: Please, Jules, don’t!

Me: I was just kidding, Ants! Now that you are dead, there is no hurry for anything.

  1. Who I am says:

    You are handling this much better than I did. Getting the tombstone and completing that task was the final for me. I had a bottle of coca cola engraved on my brother’s tombstone with the red seal colored into it. My brother loved, loved anything coca cola. I am so proud of you and so glad you have Ming and family to fall back on. Love and hugs

  2. Headstones can cost a pretty penny and can be so emotional
