Plan Your Epitaph Day: What Do You Want Your Tombstone To Say?
Your epitaph, or what’s written on your tombstone, will speak to people forever. What do you want to have displayed for all eternity? In case you don’t know what an epitaph is, here’s how it’s defined at miriam-webster.com.
“an inscription on or at a tomb or a grave in memory of the one buried there.”
Many celebrities have had some great epitaphs:
Mel Blanc: “That’s All Folks! The Man of a Thousand Voices”
Karen Carpenter – “A star on earth, a star in heaven”
Rodney Dangerfield – “There goes the neighborhood.”
Bette Davis – “She did it the hard way.”
Marty Feldman “He made us laugh,he took my pain away. I love you, Lauretta.”
Eva Gabor “Our Darling Eva. We Love You”
Jackie Gleason – “And away we go.”
Merv Griffin – “I will not be right back after this message.”
Personally, here’s what I want my tombstone to read:
“Watch where you step, didn’t your mother teach you anything?”
