Since we are all writers here, I thought this would be something fun for us to do.
"Plan Your Epitaph" event provides a good opportunity to take a moment and think about what you might want written as your final tribute.

What is an Epitaph you ask? Well it's an inscription upon a person's gravestone, tombstone, headstone and the like written in memory of the person. A good Epitaph is something written that makes you stop and think too.

So what would your Epitaph say?

So famous ones are as such,

"Here lies the body of Richard Hind,
who was neither ingenious, sober or kind."

Poet H.J. Daniel's epitaph for his wife:

"To follow you I'm not content.
How do I know which way you went?"

Lawyer Sir John Strange:
"Here lies an honest lawyer,
and that is Strange."

Julian Skaggs of West Virginia: "I made an ash of myself."
Edgar Allen Poe:

"Fly Quoth the Raven 'Nevermore.'"

Here be Whacko.
Proof you can take it with you.

Ah le morte, a heavy thought at the best of times. But I want to die like my grandfather, peacefully asleep. Not like his passengers!!!!

Here lies Max,
living proof that borgs in the delta quadrant
don't take kindly to lewd offers.

At age 55,000 Max was one of the first to sign up for HMS Disco Ball.

In really tiny letters, so you have to get close to see:




You're standing on me

"When you're not looking this tombstone is blank."

Yeah I ripped that off, and I've played the Fable games a few too many times :D

(My gravesite will have a gargoyle. The fam knows this.)

"Oooooh we're the boys in the chorus
We hope you liked our show
We know you're rootin' for us
But now it's time to go!"
