Let's talk of graves and worms and epitaphs.

An Epitaph A Day - October 28

Keeps Death's Spectre Away

Epitaph on an Ohio woman's tombstone:

NEURALGIA worked on Mrs. Jones '
Till 'neath the sod it laid her.
She was a worthy Methodist,
And served as a crusader.
Her obsequies were held at two,
With plenty of good carriages.
Death is the common lot of all,
And comes as oft as marriages.
