I was fascinated by this tombstone immediately upon seeing it. I'd love to know what the inscription means.

Gotta admit, I can't figure it out at all.

When it comes to tombstone inscriptions, my favorite, often seen in New England cemeteries from the 1700's, is

Behold my friend as you pass by
As you are now so once was I
As I am now soon you will be
So prepare for death and follow me



"Let me think about it" = the coward's way of saying "no"

I hate to sound macarbe, but I really love dark, morbid inscriptions. They're strangely...poetic.

It means she underwent surgery to remove water from her body (probably a wicked edema), and was tapped (tap'd) 66 times in 67 months totally 240 gallons. Apparently, she never bitched about it, nor feared it. The tombstone belongs to a woman named Mary Page.

One of the funniest grave stones I've seen is the one of one of my great-grand uncles : "Here lays xxxxxx, born 1870, died 1930, along with his daughters, yyyyyyy, born 1880, died......"

the first time I saw it, I was "boy, something is wrong with that one, but I cannot figure it out properly  Laugh out loud
