822. Grave stone

822graves

Steven and Cassie had been married for thirty-two years when Cassie died of breast cancer. At the time, their daughter, Annabelle, was thirty. She was happily married and had three children.
About two years later Steven remarried. To Mabel. Annabelle was outraged.

“That woman!” said Annabelle. “She’s just after the money. She’s using my father. She’s a conniving witch.”

Annabelle never visited her father. Not even with the children. She would have nothing to do with him. How could he love such a woman?

A few years after his second marriage, Steven died. Of a heart attack. In the ambulance. On the way to the hospital.

Then his second wife, Mabel, died. Annabelle paid to have the gravestone corrected:

In loving memory
of
STEVEN
loved husband
of
Mabel
Cassie

      My sister wanted to change our grandfather’s gravestone to include our grandmother and not his second wife. Fortunately it was a veteran’s gravestone – and such gravestones don’t mention the spouse… !
