    Rather than an epitaph...


    Rather than an epitaph, how about writing your own life headline?
    Believe I'd be inclined to go with the last line of my RHP Profile:

    "His Grace/our gratitude. Sans Dieu Rien."


    Yours?

    I had a great life, a super life, but then I died.

    If you are ever in Winston Salem, North Carolina, go visit the Moravian Brethren graveyard.

    They believed that all the stones should be humble and low. And they had a variety of thoughtful sayings and verses on them. I quite enjoyed strolling around and reading those gravestones.

    Any chance you can recall any of the epitaphs?

    Mostly they were bible verses. But unexpected ones like from the Song of Songs - "Arise up my beloved and come away with me" I think may have been one. I remember that romantic poetry was used by someone, if that was not the specific passage.

    Sorry I cannot quote to you more. I remember the overall impression. Never was walking in a graveyard so, well .... refreshing.

    But that was around 93. Specifics I can't give you.
