QR codes head to tombstones

(FOX19) - The Allen Monument Company in Crawfordsville, Indiana is now using QR codes on headstones.

The code can connect you to an entire memorial site about a loved one, provided by Cincinnati-based company Making Everlasting Memories.

The site can include photos, a biography and other information.

All it takes is a simple scan from a smartphone.

People can text messages to the family from the code and they can also share other stories about the departed.

While the technology is still very new, the company's owner says he's already selling a few a day.

The QR code comes with a one-time fee that's included in the cost of the headstone.

It can range from $99 to $400.
