on my grave I would like to have my very favorite verse from the Bible
1 Corinthians 13:1
"If I speak in the tounges of men and of angels but have not love, I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal"
That entire chapter is beautiful.
for a burial. I will be buried in a city grave, no name just a number. I have lived all my adult life with my parents up until the died. I never left their side. My mother in her wisdom purchased a family plot of 3 graves. One for her,one for my father,and one for me. Because...
One of the rarest people that lived, a hidden beauty with a lot of pain at bay. Here lies a genuine person, someone that deserved to live, wish she was saved, rest dearly. -Love... whoever cares about me besides myself, I don't know.

I think I want my tombstone all in 1337 speak. I wouldn't really care what it said as long as it was that.
Or perhaps written by lolcats?
Oh, I don't know, teh interwebz have so many excellent ways of expression.
"Here lies Jon Furniss, all his base are belong to you...
Milky has lots of ancestors buried throughout the United States and Europe. That is because they are dead.Which reminds her of a joke:Why did the cemetery have a big fence and locked gate?People were dying to get in.Ha. Milky's Grandpa used to say that. Her Mom's Dad. Not...
There's an old epitaph from colonial times that I've always really liked.
"Think of me as you pass by
As you are, so once was I
As I am, so shall you be
So come in death and follow me."
I think that beats "beloved wife/mother/daughter/whatever...

If You Pass Here Take It Slow.
We Were Humans Too You Know
Singing, Laughing, Dancing Too,
Yes We Did Things Just Like You.
Only Difference Now You See,
You Have Chances More Than We.
Kiss Your Children, Look Above,
Whisper Every Breath With Love.
Don't Forget Its All Wrote Down...
I think that before I die, I want to legally change my name to "Here," so that my tombstone could simply read "Here lies." And people who knew me could walk by, shake their head and say, "Ain't that the truth."
"Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy...
They're All Dead, but
We Know Not Why.
As for me, sure I'm dead too.
This verse of mine being
read by you...
Is just a sad little note to say:
You saw it now so go away.
"Under The Wide and Starry Sky
Dig The Grave And Let Me Lie.
Glad Did I Live And Gladly Die,
And I Laid Me Down With A Will!
This Be The Verse You Grave For Me:
"Here He Lies Where He Longed To Be
Home Is The Sailor, Home From The Sea,
And The Soldier Home From The Hill...
Just A Name In Stone That's True,
A Stranger's Dust, Unknown To You.
While I Slept You Laughed and Played
Busy With The Life You Made.
But I Wish You All The Best
From My Sweet Abode Of Rest.
This One Thought I Leave With You:
Be Sincere In All You Do.
Keep Your Eyes on God Above...
I would want my tombstone to say " Love one another" John 13:34
This is the whole verse: 34"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 35 By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one...
Do I want a tombstone? I'd prewrite a card, with simply this:
"Farewell my love,
I graduated life,
To join forces with angels above.
Enclosed is exactly $4.75 for Starbucks coffee,
I love you."
One hundred years from now, it will not matter what your bank account was, the sort of house you lived in, or the kind of car you drove, but the world may be different because you were important in the life of a child.”
Something along the lines of "Here lies the best psycho, ***** ever. No one will ever forget her, her temper, and a whole lot of other sentimental crap. P.S. She was also a great daughter, sister, and friend. Most of the time, lol."
Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
