My son mentioned this in a comment on a different post. My parents own a burial plot in Ohio next to his mother’s. He has no intention of being buried there, he keeps telling me that I should put a “gone on vacation” sign on the plot when the time comes. His sister keeps insisting that she’s going to a least put a headstone on the plot, but dad gets extremly pissed when she says that.

Dad’s been a smoker for all his life, literally, he started when he was 7 or 8 years old. He was complaining the other day that he couldn’t smoke in his wheelchair by the door at the hospital when I went to park car. I jokingly said that we could put a bench with a couple of ashtrays on his burial plot and call it the LW Memorial Smoking Bench, and that when the Farm was done with his body we could put his ashes in the ashtrays.

He liked that idea. So if you’re ever in Lima Ohio and in a cemetary there, I don’t know which one, look for the bench. If you’re a smoker, have a seat and light one up for him.
