This Iowa Tombstone Has A Funny Hidden Message You Need To See
This man definitely wanted to get the last laugh.
A tombstone in Polk County Iowa is causing a stir because of its hidden in plain sight message that some people find offensive and inappropriate.
A tombstone located in the Warren-Powers Cemetery with the name, Steven Paul Owens reads: Forever in our hearts until we meet again, cherished memories known as, our son, brother, father, papa, uncle, friend, and cousin.
You probably didn't find the hidden message reading that. Let me paint you a better picture...Watch the video below:
The first letter of each phrase on his tombstone reads “F--- off.” A phrase that the family used often and jokingly.
Steven’s daughter Lindsay Owens said, “It was definitely his term of endearment. If he didn’t like you, he didn’t speak to you. It’s just who he was.”
The family made the headstone with the intention of it being a harmless way to remember their beloved Steve, however, the cemetery is not very fond of the idea.
Warren-Powers Cemetary Staff said they were against the headstone from the beginning. They believe profanity does not belong where loved ones are laid to rest for eternity.
The family is hoping that the cemetery will not force them to remove the grave from the site.
Steven’s son Zachary Owens said, “No one’s forcing anyone to come out and look at it. That’s a choice that you make. We didn’t do it to offend anyone, make anyone mad or hurt anyone’s feelings. We did it because it was our father, and we love him, and that’s how we remember him."
The cemetery has not yet said anything about removing the stone.
