Grandpa Proffitt's Headstone
Grandpa Proffitt's headstone was broken a acouple of years ago. Apparently a mowing machine had struck it and scored it and it broke along the score. I had asked the people at Bowlings Mortuary about fixing it but no one ever returned my call. James Robert and I went to the cemetary and piced up the stone and James went to work putting it back together. He measured nad marked the two sections and then drilled dorrespionding holes in each piece. He then cut a piece of rebar to fit into each hole. Then he used concrete patch and put the two pieces back together and strapped them over night until the patch set. The next day I took the stone back to the cemetary and put it back in place.
