Yesterday, Mike and Cheryl went with Cheryl’s Mammaw to visit the grave of her husband, Eugene Doyle (Pappaw), who died this year. While there, Mike captured this photo of these two headstones that we noticed at Pappaw’s funeral. They are very near his grave site and hard to miss.
The coincidence of their proximity to each other is a bit bizarre. It sort of calls to mind the scene in Mark Twain’s “Tom Sawyer” in which Tom and Huck show up at the church while their funeral is being conducted. And this quote, “The reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated.” — Mark Twain
