    Head stone

    Wow, that's crazy, I would think they would not want to remember the wheelchair, but just remember him?

    I think it's fitting. Free from the surly bonds of the limits of science, humanity, compassion and his own harsh but fragile human body. Especially kids. Some are such old souls .. I mean that as such that they realize the big picture and their perceived insignificant part in it. Maybe I can just relate.

    I think it's beautiful. I don't wish for such adornments for myself, but it was my kid, yeah. Spread the parts of me out to the slabs at various universities and learn, learn, learn what went wrong.

    Good one Tj

    I agree with Lynnifer, the guy is free, knows where he's going and leaving his chair behind. Looks like he put some thought into it as there won't be any dogs pissing that high!
    From the time you were born till you ride in a hearse, there is nothing so bad that it couldn't be worse!

    All fringe benifits must be authorized by Helen Waite, if you want your SCI fixed go to Helen Waite!

    Why be politically correct when you can be right!

    This unique monument shows the young boy jumping upward, out of his wheelchair. Confined to the chair most of his young life, he is now free of earthly burdens.

    Back in the 90's there was a quad in Grand Junction, Co that had himself buried standing up.

    I think it's great, except that I don't like the basic hospital chair.
