When Edouard Garneau died last August, his wife of 53 years ordered a bench-style tombstone. That wasn’t all: Several months later, the monument maker added a high-tech innovation — a small, square image known as a quick response or QR code, affixed alongside the big letters spelling out Garneau.
People scanning the code with their smartphones are taken to a website that includes Garneau’s obituary and a photo gallery highlighting the Seattle-area businessman. In the future, more photos and stories from family and friends can be added.
