Anyway - my dad asked me to photograph her stone )-: . He wants me
to send prints of it to the family members who will receive a copy of
the DVD slideshow I made for the memorial service. (mom picked out
the pictures and music for me to make it - I kept asking her what she
was punishing me for??? We laughed about that often towards the end
as I was trying to get it done for her.

Your Mom was very generous - she was an amazing person I'm sure. I lost
my dad to prostate cancer and my mom to a heart attack. You will never
forget your parent(s) and their generosity. The older you get, the more
apparent it becomes. Your dad is to be cherished.

The stone is black, shiny and polished. The engraving is white with
a Marine Corps Emblem by my dad's name and a running horse near my
mom's name and dates. It's set in a rural cemetery.

Whatever you do (with the expert advice here) will be fine. I have taken
many shots like this, but nothing means more than going there and
placing some flowers several times a year.

I sympathize with your loss.
