This. DH's grave has a grave marker. I've never put flowers on it, even though it is within a few miles of my house. In fact, I've been to his grave once since he died several years ago. I do not believe he is there, so why would I go there? I've never been to my grandparents' graves or my mother's grave either. They all have headstones or grave markers.

OMG!!!!! If my mother knew I was putting pebbles on her nice headstone she'd be turning in her grave faster than any windmill.
