Death is usually a sad and intense situation that people either deal with or are involved in. When we visit wakes and prepare for funerals, wearing black and preparing yourself for deep reflection and constant tears can be overwhelming, especially for those who have lost a loved one. When time passes by, relatives, friends and loved ones come back to the graves and see only their tombstone.
What many often forget is the last few words the departed wish to leave with their loved ones which are usually engraved in their epitaph. Epitaphs are usually sweet and short. They’re made ahead of time or constructed by the departed’s relatives who arranged the funeral. The following are some interesting epitaphs that actually made it to the tombstones.
