My question is: Can you remove marking off a tombstone?
I am aware of what you can use and what not to use when cleaning tombstones, I wondered if
there was anything that could be done. I am aware that it would depend on the condition of the
tombstone, the location of the scratched profanities, and other factors prior to determining on IF
anything could be removed.
I know the answer is likely no. The reason I am asking, I just do not want someone trying a
do-it-yourself removal project on any of these tombstones if I can help it. The cemetery was
damaged once on purpose, I just don't want to see it damaged twice by accident when the second
time can be avoided.
