Joey Ramone has a headstone

When I visited Joey Ramone’s grave he didn’t have a headstone despite it being well over a year since his passing. I made a return visit and now he does have a headstone.

    In Jewish tradition, it is customary for the grave marker to be put in place and for an unveiling ceremony to be held after the Kaddish period [11 months for parents and 30 days for other close relatives] is over, but no later than one year after the death. This is probably the reason there was no headstone for so long after his death.
