The Meddler : Head Stone (Spoilers)

Head Stone (Spoilers)

My wife said that they never resolved the issue of the head stone for her late husband. I say it was resolved when she and Zipper were discussing the Beyonce lyrics (as you recall finding a proper inscription was one of the hold ups and it seemed the lyrics would have been a good inscription). Who is right?

Re: Head Stone (Spoilers)

Oh wow, I didn't think about the Beyonce lyrics being the headstone, but you may be on to something there. They didn't come out and say it, but it makes sense.

Then again, his brothers and family were so adamant about it being My Way that maybe they just went with that. She just wasn't ready to discuss it or move on and get that closure yet. When we see her putting the ashes in the ocean and then kissing JK Simmons at the end, she finally got her closure and was willing to move on. I don't think she cared so much about what was on the headstone as much as she was about having to actually talk about and get the headstone, thus moving on.

Can you have a headstone if you don't bury the ashes? Marney spread the ashes over the ocean, I guess she doesn't want a headstone for her husband.


English is not my first language, so please excuse any mistakes.

Re: Head Stone (Spoilers)

That puzzled me as well. I doubt the funeral industry would turn away any business and require that cremains or a body be buried next to the headstone and plot the family purchases, but it seemed like an odd disconnect here.

Re: Head Stone (Spoilers)

She had half the ashes, didn't she? The brothers had the other half.
