Here lies otis the moonshine master my still will be right by tombstone so take a jug to go earnst will keep it runnin
I don't want a headstone...just scatter me about!
"Here lies Hippy, on his last trip."
"He died laughing."
I wouldn't want it to read like this one of C.S.Lewis's verses:
'I saw it once upon a tombstone, "In memory of Martha Ray. Here lies one who lived for others: Now she's at rest, and so are they."'
No headstone for me either. Just cremate me and scatter my ashes in the clouds. That's all I wish.
"Over my dead body."
No headstone for me. Anyone who wants to come to what I hope is my final resting place would hear the sound of waves lapping the shore and feel the breeze coming off the ocean.
I doubt I will have one, but if I did it would be something like this.
Life is cruel. Why should the afterlife be any different?
When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced.
Live your life so that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice.
There won't be enough of me left for a headstone. I'm getting cremated.
"Isn't it quiet round here?"
'Died of natural decay'
I will leave that up to someone else to decide.
I pretty much have said and will continue to say whatever I think needs to be said.
For those who were unable to understand what I said, perhaps "I told you so" would be applicable.
"Flowers are not helping me"
*PS: Im not buried with anything valuable, so unless you're looking for a meal....*
On a serious note I don't want a headstone.
Do you fear death? Do you fear that dark abyss? All your deeds laid bare, all your sins punished?
OR maybe something like this:
In loving memory of NJ Bohemian, who is not dead... Oh I'll just go with "Well I make a habit out of doing things that people say I can't do: Walk through fire, waterski blindfolded, take up piano at a late age."
OR even this:
Mom: You're going to ruin our lives.
Me: No, *you're going to ruin our lives.
Mom: No, you are.
Me: You... Times infinity!
OR something like this:
"If you had a sister and a dog, I'd choose the dog." The person who would most likely say this quote in my family would be my older sister Madison. She likes to repeat quotes from movies. Unfortunately, that means *I* like to repeat quotes from movies. I'm a freaking whiz at it. Test me you will.
When I die, I will be burned, I will then be dumped in the ocean. My tombstone will be the Sun Moon and Stars. The sea will consume the leftovers of my shell, and will eventually process my remains, some time in the future what is left of my remains will be eaten or drank by another, and the life cycle starts again. Someday in the future I will appear again, you may not recognize me, or understand what I was, but know this I became with one nature and nature became one with me. So goes the cycle of life.
Dear Isabelle Marie Dandurand,
Just yesterday you were in diapers. Today you're wearing nothing but underwear and a cowgirl hat, screaming, "YEEEHAWW," in the house, pretending you're the lone ranger, (not right now, now but when I was little) We love you so much. But you're irrational and counter-productive sometimes. Also, we'd like to share with you a song that you loved listening to in which we don't have on us right now. Good luck in Heaven! :-)
