Just in case the hotlink for the above image doesn't work, it's here. Apparently an actual memorial, it reads:

Mona Herold Vanni

October 14, 1912 to April 11, 1996

You spent your life expressing animosity for nearly every person you encountered. Including your children. Within hours of his death, you even managed to declare your husband of fifty-seven years unsuited to being either a spouse or a father. Hopefully, you are now insulated from all the dissatisfaction you found in human relationships.

Buddy, Jackie and Mike.

Although apparently not an actual case of parental alienation, it says something for those too prepared to bad-mouth others, does it not?
