As I arrived at the cemetery today, I noticed something that I've never seen before. It appeared to be paid advertising space on the back of the headstones.
I then learned from the sexton that these two men owned competing auto dealerships in a nearby town. When the first of the two died, the family had the name of his business etched into the back of his stone. Not to be outdone, when the second one died, his family took in a picture of the dealership and had the image permanently etched in the back of his stone. These graves now sit approximately 60 feet apart and even in death, they are still competing.
