    I got in touch to enquire about it. I was shown the 'before' photo of the headstone and true enough the chip was already there! I had not noticed it, but of course, once refreshed with all your wonderful expertise the stone came up like new! I felt terrible for mentioning it! and yet was treated with great understanding. Thank you!"
