It Pays to Procrastinate

Ten years ago, Carl Hooker reserved a plot in the couples section of the Vermont Veterans Memorial Cemetery, and bought a large granite headstone to go with it.

As a personal touch he had the manufacturer add a rendering of the Washington, D.C., Mormon Temple, an outline of Vermont for himself and an outline of Australia for his wife. On the back is his wife's name and birth date and his name and birth date.

Centered beneath are the words "For Time and Eternity." [Link]
Hooker has since divorced his wife, joined the Episcopal Church, and moved to the Midwest.
