Rest In Peace

All Saints' Day today and we went to visit Tini's parents' tomb in Pililia. We were walking through the maze of tombs when I started to wonder what I wanted to put on my gravestone when I die. What epitaph would I put considering I could only fit a few words on it... unless I go and get a bigger one...

On that note... just sharing the epitaphs of some famous people...


“That’s All Folks”
The Man of a Thousand Voices
(Mel Blanc)

She did it the hard way
(Bette Davis)

“The Entertainer”
He did it all

(Sammy Davis, Jr.)

Steel true, Blade straight
(Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)

Called Back
(Emily Dickinson)

The Body ofB. Franklin, Printer
Like the Cover of an old Book
Its Contents turn out
And Stript of its Lettering & Guilding
Lies here. Food for Worms
For, it will as he believed
appear once more
In a new and more elegant Edition
corrected and improved
By the Author
(Benjamin Franklin)

VOCATUS ATQUE
NON VOCATUS
DEUS ADERIT
(Carl Jung)
“Invoked or not invoked, the god is present”

Quoth the Raven
“Nevermore!”

(Edgar Allan Poe)

Mine would probaby say something like:

She wanted to stay but the devil needed her badly...
(Conci Clemente)
