Grave mistake: Ed Koch’s tombstone engraved with wrong birth date

http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/koch-tombstone-mistake-151054969.html

The man who engraved former New York City Mayor Ed Koch's tombstone has apologized for putting on the wrong birth date.
Tommy Flynn, the owner of Flynn Funeral and Cremation Memorial Services, told NBC's New York affiliate that he inadvertently listed Koch's birth year as 1942 instead of 1924. Flynn says he feels "terrible" and has vowed to correct the grave error, which was discovered over the weekend.

I'm sure the guy who engraved it is dying to fix it but is probably just buried right now. I hope they don't unearth any other problems.
