We erect stone markers to identify the graves of the significant people we loved. When Cracker Jack creator Frederick Rueckheim decided to put a logo on the confection’s package in the early 1900s, he modeled it after his own beloved grandson Robert, who often wore a sailor suit.

But just as the first packages bearing the sailor boy rolled off the assembly line, Robert got pneumonia and died. Today little Robert’s tombstone in Chicago bears the Cracker Jack logo he inspired. -- National Enquirer, June 7, 1994, p. 23.
