As I explained in this post, the bolts on Jake and Sawyer’s nameplates were replaced. I still do not understand what happened to the bolts. There was no construction in the area. No other recent funerals have been by their plot. I might have to add this to the long list of unknowns.
Maybe, as my very sweet cousin pointed out Jake and Sawyer are just being boys playing together and being mischievous. Or perhaps, Jake and Sawyer are just giving us other ways to take care of them. I do not know.
I do know that the grounds people found other bolts to secure the nameplates for the time being. They did explain that because these are not the original bolts they might not hold. This part I understand very well, if the nameplates move again we will have to reorder them both. If anyone is keeping count that will be the 4th nameplate for Jake and the 3rd for Sawyer.
I am okay with waiting to see what happens and I know that the saying is that “nothing is written in stone.” But ultimately, these nameplates are written in stone for Jake and Sawyer. They should be right.
