Ever thought about what you would like written on your tombstone? Here are some unusual epithets

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

                        __

 

Anna Wallace

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!)
