Marriage certificate.

Sidney Saunders Statue

This statue was placed atop Sidney Saunders burial vault by his questionable wife, holding a copy of their marriage certificate, as supposed proof that they were actually married. She had the statue facing downtown, toward the naysayers' homes, where he could stare at them for eternity.
