Tombstone treasures

Saturday, September 14, 2013

Harry Edsel Smith of Albany, New York: born 1903 died 1942 Looked up the elevator shaft to see if the car was on the way down. It was.

Thurmont, Maryland
Here lies an Atheist, all dressed up and no place to go.

Nova Scotia
Here lies Ezekial Aikle, age 102 only the good die young.

Ribbesford, England
The children of Israel wanted bread
and the Lord sent them manna
Clark Wallace wanted a wife,
And the devil sent him Anna.

New Mexico
Here lies Johnny Yeast
Pardon him for not rising

Here lies the body of Jonathan Blake
stepped on the gas instead of the brake

Sir John Strange
Here lies an honest lawyer
and that is Strange

Here lies the body of our Anna
Done to death by a banana
It wasn't the fruit that laid her low
but the skin of the thing that made her go

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.

Remember man, as you walk by,
As you are now, so once was I
As I am now so shall you be
remember this and follow me.

To which someone replied by writing on the tombstone:
To follow you I'll not consent, Until I know which way you went.
