My father died last month, and we need to pick out a marker for his grave. He was a hot-rodder, and the love of his life was his '73 Mach I Mustang.
We'd be thrilled if we could have the classic Mustang emblem
engraved on his marker, which is likely to be a flat, gray granite gravestone.
The funeral director with whom we were working let us know that copyrighted images weren't available for such use. Instead, he showed us some clip art. However, a family member talked to a coworker who used to work for a monument company, and she
said that the Mustang emblem might be available. . . .
So, hivemind, is this something that we should pursue? I'd rather not rely fully on family hearsay or sources, and I'd prefer not to invite a legal imbroglio. If anyone (paging ColdChef
) could give me a definitive answer and maybe some leads, I'd appreciate it.
Grave is in OK; we don't have too much to spend.
