Interesting Gravestones

Here are some actual gravestones showing that we humans can laugh at death, and after...

On the grave of Ezekial Aikle in East Dalhousie Cemetery, Nova Scotia:
Here lies
Ezekial Aikle
Age 102
The Good
Die Young.
In a Ribbesford, England cemetery:
Anna Wallace
The children of Israel wanted bread
And the Lord sent them manna,
Old clerk Wallace wanted a wife,
And the devil sent him Anna.
In a Ruidoso, New Mexico cemetery:
Here lies
Johnny Yeast
Pardon me
For not rising.
Someone determined to be anonymous in Stowe, Vermont:
I was somebody.
Who, is no business
Of yours.
In a Georgia cemetery:
"I told you I was sick!"
John Penny's epitaph in the Wimborne, England cemetery:
Reader if cash thou art
In want of any
Dig 4 feet deep
And thou wilt find a Penny.
On Margaret Daniels' grave at Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, Virginia:
She always said her feet were killing her
But nobody believed her.
In a cemetery in Hartscombe, England:
On the 22nd of June
- Jonathan Fiddle -
Went out of tune.
On a grave from the 1880's in Nantucket, Massachusetts:
Under the sod and under the trees
Lies the body of Jonathan Pease.
He is not here, there's only the pod:
Pease shelled out and went to God.
In a Thurmont, Maryland cemetery:
Here lies an atheist
All dressed up
And no place to go.

Today's Reflection:
A barking dog never bites.
-at least not while he's barking...

Live Long and Prosper...
