Resting comfortably?

I ran across some really interesting shrines for deceased persons while I was at La Vista Memorial Park in National City on Wednesday.

Here is a photograph of one of the more elaborate shrines in the "unmaintained" section of the cemetery:

I saw no name of the deceased person on the monument - perhaps it is hidden by the flowers and other adornments.
Obviously, two or more people come to share some time with their loved one - note the comfortable office chair and the low table. It wouldn't surprise me to learn that they bring a portable television, play cards or even nap to spend their time with their loved one in the sun on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Sweetwater River valley.
