amyldoanitrite: When my wife and I had our first baby, she had a fatal birth defect and only survived for 30 minutes after being born. We'd known it was going to happen for several months, but it was still the most painful experience of my life. A week or so after the funeral, we went back to the cemetery to see the newly installed headstone, only to find that it had been placed on the grave of another child. My wife went absolutely hysterical and I stormed into the cemetery office ready to make some heads roll. Of course, the cemetery director was absolutely aghast and had it fixed the next day, but it felt like the emotional wound that was still so fresh had just been ripped wide open again. I know mistakes happen, but funerary services should really have flawless quality control.
