hmmm.... what is it?

I found this interesting stone in Fairview Cemetery in Joplin, MO.  At first I thought it was a wishing well but then I noticed the book on top.  Not sure what it is. What do you think it is?


  1. I've seen them with open books on pedestals a few times before, but whoever came up with this idea can't have valued books very highly. The way that spine's bent gives me a chill.

  2. It's the Book of Life, and now her name is written in it. The other page was probably reserved for her husband.
