Harry Edsel Smith
Born 1903 – Died 1942
Looked up the elevator shaft to see if the car was on the way down. It was.
In a Thurmont, Maryland cemetery:
Here lies an Atheist, all dressed up and no place to go.
Here lies Ezekial Aikle, Age 102
Only the Good Die Young
The children of Israel wanted bread,
And the Lord sent them manna.
Clark Wallace wanted a wife,
And the Devil sent him Anna.
Here lies the body of Jonathan Blake.
Stepped on the gas instead of the brake.
In a Silver City, Nevada, cemetery:
Here lays The Kid.
We planted him raw.
He was quick on the trigger
But slow on the draw.
In a cemetery in England:
Remember man, as you walk by,
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, so shall you be.
Remember this and follow me.
(Then someone added this line:
“To follow you I’ll not consent until I know which way you went!)
