Can a kohen, or someone who will not have the opportunity to visit a grave for that matter, ask someone who will be visiting a grave to put stones there for him?

    see judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/4057/…. What do you think that this accomplished that might not be able to be accomplished by proxy? – Matt Jun 24 '14 at 23:07

    Did you really mean "Can"? I mean, why can't he? – msh210 Jun 25 '14 at 0:25

    @msh210, I have no clue why he couldn't however, as Matt's above quoted question (which inspired this one) points out, it is an action of respect and of building up the kever. I do not know whether the intention of the action affects that. I would figure that their is no problem, but halachot and minhagim relating to the deceased are far from my area of expertise. – Noach MiFrankfurt Jun 25 '14 at 2:35

    @NoachmiFrankfurt, okay, just checking that you really meant to ask "Can" and not something like "Should". – msh210 Jun 25 '14 at 4:54
