Funny this turned up, I was just talking to the most pessimistic person I know, Glass always half full type of person. hates heights, country people, travel etc. Anyway he was in the cemetery the other day visiting his wifes family as you do, Now the graveyard is near the airport and he hates it as he thinks all the planes will crash into the graveyard while he is there. This plane he spies coming in and its waving about a bit in the wind when he announces "Say your good byes quick were out of here I don't like the look of that yoke coming in"
If it crashes they wont know wh'os dead and who was killed by it will be a total mess and I am not leaving this world without it costing your lot a few tears and money to bury me so lets go.
"Please keep off the grass"

Here's a few

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me

(Emily Dickinson, I believe.)

Or

Under this sod,
lies another sod.

Smile Smile

Or the famous one on Bicycle John's gravestone.

Here lies Bicycle John,
who's bicycle stopped
but he went on.

Smile Smile
