Over My Dead Body?


I saw something on a friend's Facebook that I thought I'd look into in more detail. It was a picture of a gravestone that made me wonder if it were real or just photoshopped. Here's what it looks like:

Her daughter, Jane Menster of rural Bernard, says she and her father were searching for a way to remember their mother's generosity. She says the sugar cookie recipe serves as a reminder of her mother's love, and an enduring holiday tradition for their family.

Here's the front of the gravestone.
