    These look like some interesting monuments. When I die, I would like to have a pretty cool monument. It doesn't have to be large or expensive, but I would like it to be unique. It seems that most gravestones are pretty plain and simple. I would like mine to have a unique font or picture to make it different than the rest.

    [[email protected]] Glad you appreciate the rune stone images! The rune stones were actually not used as grave stones, but as memorial stones. More about it on Wikipedia: /Anna B.
