Re: navy emblem on gravestone? #general

Sometimes the symbols and devices on grave markers (and memorial plaques) represent some sort of preference or quirk of the decedent (or ascribed to the decedent by one or more survivors).

My sister, for example, had this thing about butterflies.  She had butterfly themes in her clothing, jewelry, and home decor, and even in one of her e-mail addresses.  So when a close friend of hers suggested that a butterfly be placed on her grave marker, my Mom and I readily acquiesced.
