Articles :: Epitaphs


It's inevitable; there will be one day when we will have to make plans for our death and possibly the death of a loved one. Deciding what to write on our headstone or the headstone of a loved one is a part of the process. It's a bit of a morbid thought, but the headstone inscriptions that are chosen will be seen and reflected upon forever. This is all the more reason to go against the grain, be original, and come up with something interesting and have your gravestone standout that says it your way. Yes, death is a somber subject and it affects many lives in numerous ways. If you can help your family with the mourning process by invoking thought, or maybe even a laugh, then why not? Life sometimes is too serious; but maybe you lived your life in a more carefree way, maybe your loved one was a memorable character and brightened the lives of the people they touched?

Words create meaning in our lives. They provide us with hope, fear, strength, will, perseverance, and every other feeling a human being can have. It's important that our dying words mean something, that they invoke something within those who were significant in our lives. This is why headstone inscriptions are so important. Here are some light hearted headstone inscriptions for inspiration. Hopefully you don't have to put these into use anytime soon.

"Nevermore" - Edgar Allan Poe

Good friend for Jesus sake forbear,
To dig the dust enclosed hear!
Blest be the man that spares these stones,
And curst be he that moves my bones - William Shakespeare

Told you I was sick!!!

"That's All Folks!"

The Best is yet to Come - Frank Sinatra

I had A Lover's Quarrel with the World - Robert Lee Frost

Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime - Dean Martin

I am ready to meet my Maker. Whether my Maker is prepared for the great
ordeal of meeting me is another matter. - Winston Churchill

Called Back - Emily Dickinson

Some of history's best minds had some of the more entertaining epitaphs. They saw it as their last chance to entertain, make laugh, cry, think, or what moves you. An epitaph should be a reflection of one's life. It should bring back nostalgic memories and feelings to those who were close to the one passing. It should give the deceased's loved ones a bit of closure, to look back and know that their life was meaningful.

When it comes to gravestones, headstones, or memorial monuments, having a memorial that your family can come to reflect and remember you by is important. Whether you decide to do something silly, comical, inspirational, or serious, Lincoln Monuments can fit all of your needs. It's important to be remembered, both through your life, and through the messages you leave behind.
