I don't know if this place is open to the public anymore, but in Lucas Kansas there is a place constructed early in the century made out of limestone cut logs made by a fellow named Dinsmore. He constructed a limestone mausoleum and behind plexiglass you can see John Dinsmore in his limestone coffin where he was placed in 1935. You could still see the tobacco juice stain on his beard. I was last there in '94, I don't know if it is still open to the public.

Yeah, this was a bad one. 1993.....
They must not have been convicted. Brandi Michelle Cirelli got married in 1996 and now lives in Washington state. It's her. It lists her as having lived in Ft. Worth, TX. Neither of them are listed with TDCJ. Hmmm......

I think this is pretty cool. Maybe it's not for everyone, but I think that it's a pretty neat way to look into the past. It makes me think a lot of findagrave.

My friend and I always joked about recording several messages so that when we die we can have a motion activated head stone

It's surprisingly less tacky than I thought it would be. It's less tacky than a lot of grave stones look at Xmas. Doh!
Still, I wonder how long it will be before they figure out a way to put ads on it?

The chips look like they could be easily pried of the headstones. Lol, I assume there's insurance in the works for that very scenario.
They stole my idea!

Thanks for moving my post! You guys have a thread for everything, lol! Yeah one of the concerns I had was people stealing it. I have no idea why they would, though.
here in town there's a little cemetery that has a tombstone that says "Infant son of Phil & Fanny Fine" I saw that when I was lurking in the graveyard when I was a kid (Death hag since about age 8) and I found it humorous for how the tombstone read, and sad because it was a baby.

Unfortunately I no longer have a picture of the grave I'm about to describe but it's baffled me for YEARS!
It's basically an above ground sarcophagus. It's really plain looking except for what's on the side of it. There seems to be a window with mini-blinds only accessible through the inside! It's in a church cemetery that really isn't that large or old so I can't even remember why I stopped there since I tend to only gravitate towards older cemeteries. My husband and I were walking through and saw it and I bet we spent hours trying to figure out what in the world was going on! I'm still confused and can't find any info about anything like it. I wish I hadn't lost all those photos in a computer crash or I'd post one. Maybe I'll try to get another shot the next time I head out that way.
Anybody know what it could possibly be?
