Yeah, that's right -- I was driving from Long Island to Edison New Jersey, and I was playing tourist along the way and I stopped at the cemetery to check out this cool/unique tombstone.

Wow. This monument is truly impressive. The carving alone is beautiful, without a single flaw. The story behind it is just as beautiful. It's worth a quick visit to check out!

Really impressive to see. Direction tips: after turning into 2nd cemetery entrance from Linden Ave (while headed north on Linden Ave) take left at T, then continue on the same road. The Mercedes will be on your right.
