    Aww, how cute is that? She sounds like a great kid.

    In 2001 when one of my Aunts died, my parents decided to buy a niche for their urns also underneath the one for my aunt & uncle, a few spaces away from my Grandparents. I got a call from my Mom one day saying that they had bought a niche for 4 urns (my parents, myself and my Uncle) and it was all paid for including the engraving of the names. So now here I was at 43 years old able to go see my name on the niche with the year of my birth and the blank spot JUST WAITING for the year I croak. It made me a bit uneasy for a few months but now I'm used to it.

    Well, I do have a history of cancer now, and to her generation, that means early death. She figured the others would want to be buried with their spouses. And that's how my mom is. But yeah, not the most tactful, my mum.

    Well I know that there are 2 plots next to my dad (and my mom when she dies) and they are available for either me or my brother. Doesn't bother me knowing its mine if I wanted it but it would be slightly creepy to see my name and birthdate on there.

    My mother's name/birthdate isn't on the tombstone...just my dad's information. She doesn't want hers added until after she passes away, and I completely understand it.

    Well, a couple of years ago on Thanksgiving, my grandma (my dad's mom) offered my mom one of the cemetary plots she bought. My mom chirpily said "sure!"

    Has anyone had any experience with the pizza place, Papa Murphy's? They make your pizza, and then you take it home and cook it. If you have, how was it?

    I like it. But my oven really is not good, so I hardly ever eat it. My favorite pizza of thiers is a chicken one, made with a garlic cream sauce instead of the usual pizza sauce.
