But what about an epitaph? You know... that little inscription that will go onto our tombstone. Have you ever considered what yours would say?
Hubs and I plan to be cremated. We'd both like our ashes to be scattered. So it seems doubtful that anyone will memorialize us with a tombstone or a plaque.
But let's take into consideration just what my personal epitaph, if I had a tombstone, would likely be.
I've often been told, although a licensed minister, that I can be ever so irreverant. I used to say that I wanted to be buried face down; so that my epitaph could read:
"Such a busy Mom, she always had to fly, buried face down, kiss her bum good-bye!"
[My poor Mother had a ‘conniption’ fit when I told her that!] So, I’d guess that would be out of the question. A little bad of me to consider it, huh?
I suppose, if I had to be serious about it, [and let’s face it, I am seldom that!], I’d want to be remembered for loving my family. And my belief that death is but a doorway into the next life. It doesn’t end here with a good-bye.
