Tombstone Tuesday: The Riccardi Grave

I've posted a picture of this grave before.  It's the grave of my Mother-in-law's father, uncle and brother.  The picture above is the original that I took a couple of years ago, when I visited with my Mom-in-law.  She told me that her brother, Rex Patrick's birth year was incorrect and they had been meaning to have it corrected.  Well, earlier this year, we lost a wonderful woman, Rose Edith Riccardi, AKA Nana.  Nana was buried with the other Riccardis in this same grave.  This was a great opportunuty to have the year for Uncle Rick corrected.  The engravers added Nana and changed 1939 to 1935.  They did a great job, too.  Thanks to my brother-in-law, Glen, for sharing this picture with me.
