Disintegrating Grave

This grave in Berrytown Cemetery hasn't worn well under the whipping of the elements over the years. Almost all that remains standing is a rapidly deteriorating poured-concrete core, filled with jack-rock aggregate.

Although the rusty rebar clearly seems to be protruding out of the stone in one place, I can't make up my mind if it's actually part of the stone's original interior structure, or if it was added at some point later to help it continue to stand.

Wow, how sad it hasn't been maintained. Never seen a grave like that before.

Looks to me like it was part of the original grave. Shame it's falling apart.
