To be strictly honest, I don't give a damn what is said about me after I kick the bucket, I will not hear it or see it on my gravestone.
I enjoy humour, but there are different types of humour. I wonder what Ezekiel Aikle Age 102 would say about his stone in East Dalhousie Cemetery, Nova Scotia, " The Good Die Young.", or Sara in Kilmurry Churchyard, Ireland, "This stone was raised by Sara's Lord.Not Sara's virtues to record. For they are known to all the town.This stone was raised to keep her down.".
Short and sweet is probably best, such as, on a coroner who hung himself: "He lived. And died. By suicide" on a stone in West Grinstead, Sussex, or, in a cemetery in Colorado, USA. "Bill Blake. Was hanged by mistake."
Effie Jean Robinson, 1897-1922 wrote down what she wished for her stone before she died.
"Come blooming youths, as you pass by , And on these lines do cast an eye. As you are now, so once was I; As I am now, so must you be; Prepare for death and follow me.", Which is not funny at all. But underneath, someone had added: "To follow you. I am not content. How do I know. Which way you went.".
But, this is a friday Five, and I must answer the question. First I must have a modest resting space, something like this,
but would be content with this,
this would suit me
Best of all, this,
I will die in hope.
