    On a grave from the 1880s in Nantucket, Massachusetts:

    In a cemetery in England:
    Remember man, as you walk by,
    As you are now, so once was I.
    As I am now, you soon will be.

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

      Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
      it's what they are like in their HEART!

            Here are a couple more good ones:

            In a cemetery in Vermont:

            Sacred to the memory of
            My husband
            John Barnes
            Who died January 3, 1803.
            His comely young widow, aged 23,
            has many qualifications of a good wife,
            and yearns to be comforted.


            in England somewhere:

            Jedediah Goodwin
            Auctioneer
            Born 1828
            Going!
            Going!!
            Gone!!!
            1876
