What do you want on your tombstone?

And please don't say, sausage and cheese.

I like this one:

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.

Maybe this on the other side:

To follow you I'll not consent, Until I know which way you went.

I want that on both sides of my tombstone, if I have one.

I don't care if I have a tombstone, nor what's on it. My guess is eventually there will be bird crap on it.

No a little Maine story...

Horris and Ethel lived in Winter Harbor Maine on a farm that Horris had grown up in. To say that Ethel nagged Horris would be an understatement.

They had been married 50 years when Ethel died one night. After the funeral, Horris and his 3 sons were carrying the casket up a hill on the farm to the family cemetary. While going through the gate to the cemetary the youngest boy (Age 40) slipped and the casket crashed against the gate post and opened up. Ethel came right out of the casket and started lecturing them all on the proper way to carry a casket to its final resting place.

It was another 10 years before Ethel died again. After the funeral, Horris and his 3 sons were again carrying the casket up the hill on the farm to the family cemetary. As they approached the gate Horris said, "Mind the post, boys, mind the post."

Not sure what I'd want on there, but a Swedish writer has this on his:
”Här under är askan av en man som hade vanan att skjuta allt till morgondagen. Dock bättrades han på sitt yttersta och dog verkligen den 31 januari 1972.”

Rough translation:
"Here lie the ashes of a man who had the habit of always putting everything off to the next day. However, in his final hour, he pulled himself together and actually died on January 31st 1972."

That's the kind of epitaph I'd like to have on my stone.

sunshine, and my feet.



I of course will still be attached to my feet, and sitting in a lawn chair, drinking a beer, feet up on my tombstone, pondering my own immortality.

I have no idea

Hopefully by the time I need to know, I'll have something truly silly to put on it.

Edit:
how about "You can have my tombstone when you pry it from my cold dead fingers"

A friend of mine is a very good appellate lawyer, but everyone always jokes that he is chronically late. Anything he files with the courts will be filed at the last minute because he is such a perfectionist--always tweaking or editing something. As a result, he is constantly filing motions with the courts for extensions of time (which our appellate courts are actually quite lenient about granting). Anyway, I've joked with him that his tombstone will read as follows:

"R. Wilkins: Motion for Extension of Time. God: Denied."

If I was being honest with myself, it'll probably end up being something like this.
