Please cut the grass and pull the weeds around this stone.  ;D

My luck is I probably won't have a stone just a marker :'(

Well Memorial weekend has passed and this made me think how sad it would be to not have a tomstone, bc my Mom went looking for her baby brother who died at birth and had a hard time finding the little grave stone that marked his place. Tomstones are for the living.

secret sign,

tombstones are for the living.  My baby brother who died at birth before i was born.  Didnt have a tombstone until my sister and i bought him one about 10 years ago.  My mother before then would go to the cemetary and look for his grave and couldnt find the marker.  so, she would start to use her hands and dig the ground up so that she could find him.  I watched this many times and i only know that she needs help.  she never got to see him or hold him because she was in a coma and no one took a picture of him so that she could see him.  How awful that is.  I cant imagine losing a child and not being able to see or touch him before he was buried.

That is so sad. I know what you mean,my Mom did the same thing with searching the grounds untill she found it and cleared it off.She is worried now that it is getting so crowded that some body would be buried in the same place. I guess you gotta mark your spot ???

I agree, tombstones are more for the living.  We recently buried my grandmother and she had already ordered her stone when she ordered my grandfathers.  It was a HUGE shock to the system to see a whole in the ground with her name on it.

I don't plan on having a stone or even a spot.  I would like to be cremated and have my ashes scattered around my favorite rose bush or something like that.

But if I were going to have a stone, my sarcastic sense of humor would have to be on it.....it would have to say:  

"Under the grass,
Lies my big fat a**.
You and your shoes,
are leaving a bruise.
So GET OFF!"

But that is just me! :P

kcguns... yes I remember the comercial and I was going to say the same thing you did LOL.

I would like mine to say... "Oh, so THATS what that button does."

                            OR


"Great... now my foots asleep too."

Knowing me and my personality, I too would probably take the more sarcastic approach.  Why have it any other way?  You're dead, and you're the one who should be able to have the last word be what you want on your tombstone.

I'd probably have something like:

If you walk on my grave, I will come out of here and haunt you for the rest of your pathetic life you SOB!

I mean think about it, it's total disrespect to walk on one's resting place.  I would be one of those BAD_WORD, hostile ghosts that throws things around.  Can we say Poltergeist??

I wouldn't want ppl feeling sorrow everytime they came to visit me (which is what I associate with a cemetery) so I'll be ashes... if I got a tombstone it'd say:

A b*itch is still a b*tch by any other name... mine happens to be Emily...

I want to be cremated too .... but if I had been going to be buried, I guess it would be;

What a relief - there at last !!!
