Cool grave marker

Observer-Reporter writer Barbara S. Miller found this creative grave marker while working Memorial Day 2011 at St. Patrick Cemetery in Canonsburg, Pa.

Obviously the late Carmine Pacano, an Italian immigrant, had a talented mosaic artist as a friend or relative, either of whom spent hours putting together this memorial to him. The tablet is level to the ground, Miller said.

It also is in need of some restoration work because this one is too cool to fall to pieces.
