Other people’s epitaphs

Headstones at the B'nai Israel Cemetery in Petaluma, California

Every day WordPress sends out topics in hopes it will prompt everyone to blog.  Last month, the well of suggestions was running dry, so they asked for suggestions.  I of course asked a morbid question.

Here’s the original post.  Many bloggers just answered the question in the comments, without actually writing a post of their own.  Others gave the matter real thought.

These are favorite answers to my question “What would you like on your tombstone?”

Going like 50

Sometimes one question led to more questions:

Identify with writing

Emotional fitness training

Sometimes you need a website instead of an epitaph:

Neatorama

Sometimes one word summed it all up:

Peeksville

My answer to the question is here.
