I'm about convinced cremation makes the most sense but just for grits and shins: what do you want on your tombstone?

I also prefer cremation, so I have not put too much thought into that one. I have thought that the last stanza of St. Patrick’s Breastplate would be a good one:

quote:

I bind unto myself the Name,
The strong Name of the Trinity,
By invocation of the same,
The Three in One and One in Three.
By Whom all nature hath creation,
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word:
Praise to the Lord of my salvation,
Salvation is of Christ the Lord.

I think that sums it up quite nicely.

It would also be nice if it were here (the Silver Plume Cemetery just outside of Silver Plume, Colorado, which is a favorite spot of mine).

I rather like the old idea from the late and much lamented Spike Milligan:

quote:
I told you I was ill
Traditionally Quaker tombstones are simple affairs with just a name and dates - that is enough. However, if I was to be buried, which I'm not, or if my ashes were to be interred, which they won't be, I think I'd choose, were it up to me, which it won't be:

quote:
Continuing towards the Light
Actually

quote:
See you later
seems fairly appropriate, too.

What about John Gay's self-composed epitaph:
quote:
Life's a jest, and all things show it;
I thought so once and now I know it.

In all (perhaps undue) seriousness, I have always been impressed with the simplicity of Isaac Newton's tombstone: 'Hic depositum est quod mortale fuit Isaaci Newtoni' or 'here has been deposited that which was mortal of Issac Newton'. Of course, if somebody would take it upon themselves to erect next to this simple grave an enormous baroque memorial in polychromatic marble with an extremely laudatory verse in heroic couplets by one of the great poets of the English language, as they did for Newton, that would also be great.

I was visiting an old cemetery and saw this tombstone from the 1800's - it had this delicate woman's hand with the index finger pointing sweetly upwards and the inscription

Gone Home

along with her name and the dates of her life.

In fact, I have a photo of it on my refrigerator...may sound strange but I find it a comfort. I'll take that, please.

Paul Eddington, star of Yes Minister, once charmingly said he'd like the epitaph "He did very little harm", which I think is lovely, as long as you can claim it's true.

Alternatively, I'd go for the unoriginal but beautiful "All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of thing shall be well". (Julian of Norwich).

Or, if the stonemason was up to it, what Alaric said. As I get older, I realise I'm more Northumbrian than English.

While waiting for a car repair yesterday, I walked through the old Irish cemetery in town. It contains the graves of most of the famine immigrants to this area, as well as their children and grandchildren.

The older stones were interesting. Instead of leading off with the name of the deceased, many read "Erected by Somebody O'Something in memory of her husband ...". Most also included their home parish and county in Ireland.

One stopped me in my tracks:

Of your mercy, pray for the soul of
Catherine Shea
who died ...

I'm not sure what good Episcopalian prayers do for a long dead Catholic, but I did it.

I'm not even sure yet whether I'd prefer to be buried or cremated, let alone what epitaph I'd like. But as a tangent, I do want God be in my heart and If you love me at the service. If it's possible, I'd prefer Psalm 130 to 23 as well. I've given firm instructions to both Madame and Dlet.
