It's a nice thought, hell.  It makes us feel better to think bad people go to hell, that someday that evil person is going to get what's coming to them.

It's a damn shame it doesn't exist.

This is why I wish to be cremated and have no headstone or gravesite whatsoever.  I don't want to have anyone worrying about that crap after I'm dead.  I don't need plastic flowers or wreaths, I don't need a rock that says who I was.  I don't need pictures or anything else like that.  Just burn me, scatter the ashes and move on.

This. If you wanted to hang out with me, you should have done it while I was alive.

They always steal military service bronze plackard off the graves where my dad is buried. Bought three Korean War replacements of them over 10 years for his site then gave up. Pity the people who do that...as Karma is a biatch.

I'm going to be cremated and the ashes will scattered over the graveyard, hopefully after I'm dead.

Why send them to the same place that Thomas Jefferson, Mark Twain, Penn and Teller, Mandona, the South Park guys, George Washington (he was a deist not a Christian), now that I think of it half to most of the founding fathers, every Jewish entertainer, most of the really good bands, and a whole lot of other really cool people are going to be for not believing in Jesus, when you can punish them instead by sending them to heaven.  In heaven, they will be forced to wear the same exact thing as everyone else, to endlessly sing songs of praise over and over again until their ears want to bleed, all while worshiping and kissing the ass of a tyrant for all eternity.  Plus you get to do this ass kissing alongside all the judgemental prudes that you pretend to like for one hour every Sunday, then do your best to avoid the rest of the week when you see them out in public.

Well, read your post, though is was typical drivel, and now moving on, so you're half way there.

This happens at every single cemetery on the planet that does bronze markers.  No new news here.

A couple of people stole bronze vases from the cemetery where my grandmother is buried (not off of her grave, thankfully). I prefer a more immediate punishment... they should be force-fed a 5 lb bag of sugar-free gummies.

People still decorate graves? I thought memorials went up wherever someone dies. Like all those roadside memorials.
 
2014-04-24 09:25:06 AM  
Too bad they can't electrify them.  I'd pay good money to see some low-life scum do "the electricity dance".

Be an organ donor and donate your (remaining) body to science. Cremation is better than buried, but your corpse can still be useful.

Or don't, it's your body. Do what you want with it.

LarryDan43: People still decorate graves? I thought memorials went up wherever someone dies. Like all those roadside memorials.


My family is pretty big on grave decorating, something that's largely skipped by me personally. I've never truly saw the purpose in it other than it makes the person feel good about said decoration, that they're honoring the dead person's memory. That's why I usually go whenever they ask me to- I do it more for them than any personal reason.

That said, those vases are damn expensive and people are slime for stealing them. Of course there are some instances where the groundskeepers will run over the vases because they forgot to go through the graveyard and reverse them, which might get reported as "stealing" as opposed to just carelessness.
 
2014-04-24 09:33:16 AM  
Happens around here too. What pisses me off is that the scrap dealer who takes the vases. They can't tell me they didn't know that bronze vases weren't stolen.
Hang them both.
 
2014-04-24 09:33:38 AM  
Two of the vases stolen were from a friend's dad and grandmother's vases. When he said something about it, I asked if they were copper and he said yeah.

However, considering it's in Portsmouth, I am surprised this doesn't happen more often!
 
2014-04-24 09:33:48 AM  
Thieves are so lazy these days.
In our day we stole the whole grave, just scooped it out in one go with a front-end loader. Sold them to an unscrupulous recycling co-op who also ran a furniture store.

"I've got a bronze gravevase guy, let me give him a call."

"Looks to be about $300"

"Okay thanks for coming in, so how much do you want for it?"

"Well he said it was worth $300, so...."

"I'll give you $15 for it, cash."

Isn't any kind of stealing a trip to hell, as in the thou shalt not kind? And wouldn't a special place in hell not be the fire and brimstone place?

I am sooo gonna visit a cemetery at night soon. Vases AND teddy bears hopefully.

I am fairly sure that human beings are inherently bloodthirsty, and that our anger mechanisms have a definite crosslink to our pleasure centers.

So naturally there's some cocaine-rat type of satiation we get from stories of Hell or of people who steal from dead babies.

Next to my Dad's grave sat a three foot statue to St. Francis, given to us by a friend when they saw his dogs mentioned in his obituary. A few years back someone stole it, and it broke my heart. About a year later someone must have gotten a conscience because it was right back in the same spot it'd been.

That's why atheists own guns too.

Why would a thief want to go to heaven anyway?  Last I heard, the per pound rate on pearly gates wasn't nearly as high as copper or brass.

It's Portsmouth, VA; I doubt they'd notice any different between there and hell.
 
2014-04-24 12:52:36 PM  
When our son died 18 years ago the cemetery director offered a grave marker with one of these vases. She did however encourage us not to get it because of the thefts. She said it wasn't your typical shady thief coming in the dead of night to steal them. She said a lot of times it would be little old ladies during the day. Damn old ladies burning in hell.

Mr Mouse works for a memorial park and this happens once in a while. However about a year ago a crack team of individuals done goofed up good. The head grounds keeper actually lives on the property and he noticed headlights in the park. He drove out there and saw a group of men scatter and left their U-Haul and rented wheel barrel behind. The cops found them in like an hour.

Well that should make melting them down easy.

A bronze vase at a gravesite has to be one of the most useless objects on Earth.  Maybe stealing a poor child's food from him might warrant a spot a hell, especially if you're rich, but a poor person taking a nearly useless object from a dead person and getting something out of it doesn't seem nearly as bad to me.

What about homemade roadside memorials set up on public sidewalks and streets?   I have one about 100 yards from my house with a cross and rotting teddy bears and bows that has been up for a few years.    Personally I don't think anyone should be allowed to put up a memorial on land that doesn't belong to them and expect it to stay there, but should you just leave up these rotting memorials littering our sidewalks and roads forever?   Whose job is it to remove them?  Can anyone remove them or do we just have to leave these rotting memorials up our entire lives?
