Florida, Massachusetts: Expired Parking Meter Tombstone

A parking meter in a small church cemetery has its time set to "expired." Pumping in coins won't help. It's the tombstone for Gordy and Joyce Burdick.

Church Rd, Florida, MA
The cemetery is next to Florida Baptist Church, which can be seen on the south side of Hwy 2 in the hamlet of Florida. If you're driving west, look for a yellow snowplow blade, on the right, in front of the village garage; the church will be just ahead, on the left, down Church Rd.
