It’s been almost seven months since George Jones passed away, and now his widow, Nancy Jones, has unveiled a monument in the late singer’s honor.

Jones revealed the monument during an emotional graveside ceremony on Monday (Nov. 18), at Nashville’s Woodlawn Cemetery. The large structure has the words “He Stopped Loving Her Today” inscribed on top, underneath the name “Jones.” The structure also features a guitar and an etched photo of the couple, who were married for 30 years at the time of his death.

Several country music insiders, including producer Billy Sherrill (pictured with Nancy Jones above), Joe Diffie, songwriter Jim Lauderdale, producer Buddy Cannon, Hank Williams‘ daughter Jett Williams and Grand Ole Opry member Jeanne Pruett were on hand for the touching service.

The graveside service kicked off a week of remembering the Possum. His tribute concert, which is drawing more than 70 performers, including Miranda Lambert, George Strait, Martina McBride and Alan Jackson, will be held this Friday, Nov. 22 at the Bridgestone Arena in Music City. The show is sold out.
