Today, April 6 is "Plan Your Epitaph Day".  While it's not the most fun day to commemorate, it did get me thinking.  What would I want my epitaph to read?  If someone I didn't know were to visit my grave site, what thought would I want those etched words on my tombstone to convey about me?

I came up with "Lover of all of God's creatures, even the birds and squirrels".  I wonder what my friends and family would suggest for my epitaph?  Anyway, digging into the Internet, I found some famous epitaphs I'd like to share with you.
