what kind of epitaph do you want?

    Just thought I'd carry the funeral thread a little further. What do you want them to carve on your tombstone? I'm inclined toward the smartass epitaph, something like "what are you looking at? You're next." When I'm not being a smartass I rather like "Under the wide and starry sky, dig the grave and let me lie. This be the verse you grave for me: here he lies where he longed to be, home is the sailor home from the sea and the hunter home from the hill." Or, maybe just the entire "Cremation of Sam McGee" on a tallish tombstone - it's kind of a long poem.

    No funeral, no memorial service, no tombstone.

    So, I suppose I will say it now. Live life, right up to the hilt. Be kind, Be Generous, and Love. I am trying to do this.
