A monument and a song

The monument and gravestone of George Jones

  On November 18th the monument was unveiled by Nancy Jones, widow of George.  The title to one of his best known song "He Stopped Loving Her Today" are inscribed on the stone along with his nickname "The Possum".
  It was a timing fitting for the event, just before his memorial in song in Nashville, which was last night.  I didn't see it.  I'll leave you a version of the song here.  It was sung at his funeral by Alan Jackson. I have tried this link from another page and it worked.  If it does not work for you just search the song title on You Tube, it's worth a listen.
The song is about a long time love and the end of a life.
