‪‪”This tombstone makes it possible to put anything next to the deceased person’s name and surname, you can write an entire novel if you like. You can put pictures, or a film there,” Saso Radovanovic, head of the company Bioenergija which sells the tombstones, told Reuters. 

A bad idea! Desist and cease.

Or no one will  ever “rest in peace.”

Smartphone usage that was not so smart.
(A life lesson we all should take to heart.)
