2002-12-10 - Gravestone Epitaphs
Genesis 3:19 By the sweat of your face you shall eat bread. Till you return to the ground, because from it your were taken; for you are dust, and to dust you shall return.
This is the fourth installment of something I have been doing from time to time. They are devotional in nature only in that it is good for us to consider our mortality and to reflect upon the fact that one day we will stand before God. These epitaphs can also be instructive to us as these were the last messages these people wanted to leave to the world.

"Weep not for me," the Savior said,
Few and evil are our days,
Soli Deo Gloria,
