    I’m trying to preplan my funeral and need to figure out what I want for a headstone. I love the idea of a music themed headstone like the guitar and music notes. I’ll have to see if I can find one like that that is within my budget. http://midwest-monuments.com/monuments/4584305585

      Monuments are very expensive but I have seen some very cool DIY videos and articles that have saved families a small fortune. Maybe you can look into that and then all your family has to do is pay for the engraving. Some people are eerie about pre-planning things related to death but if it’s something you are comfortable with then there’s nothing wrong with it!
