Thompson Monument

Sometimes when you are out gravestone hunting, you are stopped DEAD in your tracks by an unusual monument. I am quite purposeful when I am searching for a particular grave. My husband says I am on a mission. [This is at River Bend Cemetery in Westerly, RI]

Well, why is this monument so odd? It has only one word on it. It looked "unfinished". What is the purpose of the circular flat top?

Well, that's Tombstone Tuesday for you, isn't it?

It would make a dandy place to put a bouquet!

Or a birdbath?
