My condolences for your loss.

Your daughters have no right to place a stone on cemetery plots owned by you and your late husband.

As the owner of the plots, and the next of kin having rights of sepulcher under Illinois law, let the cemetery management know that you have not authorized the placement of any monument on your plots and you will sue the cemetery if they allow a monument to be placed on your plots without your consent.
