Stained Glass Tombstones

by SteveMonday, July 03, 2006

Stained Glass TombstonesA company called Stained Glass Memorials, LLC makes tombstones with stained glass insets.

The stained glass is actually a real stained glass window. They start by cutting a window through the tombstone, and then set the stained glass inside, allowing it to be enjoy from either the front or back of the tombstone.

I imagine cemetery vandals would go to town with stuff like that!

The Stained Glass Memorial unit was invented by 38-year old Adrienne Mazzone, whose husband died two years ago from duodenal cancer. As a tribute to him, she and her children created a stained glass cross, had it encased and professionally sealed, then placed in the headstone. Adrienne says that she and her children are the only ones who visit the cemetery with flowers and glass cleaner.

It attracted so much attention in the small cemetery in Cornwall, NY, that Adrienne applied for a patent. Today, her business offers them up for sale nationwide through funeral directors and headstone suppliers.
