Put me in mind of a comedy TV show when the main character Victor Meldrew made a rare visit to an old friend, a stonemason.
I've got something for you he said proudly, come and have a look.
Yes you're right. It was a highly polished headstone, completely finished, cepting the final date
thus giving Victor the opportunity to utter his famous gobsmacked catch phrase ----- "I don't believe it".
(Cepting. Is that a word. --- Should be).
