The Stained Glass Memorial unit was invented by 38-year old
Adrienne Mazzone, whose husband died two years ago from duodenal
cancer. As a tribute to him, she and her children created a

children are the only ones who visit the cemetery with flowers
and glass cleaner.

NY, that Adrienne applied for a patent. Today, her business
offers them up for sale nationwide through funeral directors
and headstone suppliers.
