I am excited. The Sisters of Saint Franicis are having an adopt a grave program to restore graves. Graves will be cleaned, repaired and sealed. As each grave is finished they will photo copy, upload photos and biographies to Find-A-Grave.Thank you Sisters of St. Francis.

This is suppose to be a "certified" grave restorer. Sealed is not good ?

depends on the type of stone etc... in reference to stones in my area of expertise (Historic stones-1800's and earlier) it is not typically a good idea at all.

More modern stones can be a much different animal...I don't presume to know much about the preservation of some of these computer etched, machine polished etc stones.
