Comic Epitaphs from the Very Best Old Graveyards

This is a sweet, old slim volume from Peter Pauper Press.  Here are a few selections:

For a dentist:

Stranger tread
This ground with gravity
Dentist Brown is filling
His last cavity

On a music teacher:

Stephen and Time
Are both now even
Stephen beat time
Now Time beat Stephen

A Bedford Tombstone

Here lies my wife
In earthy mould
Who when she lived
Did naught but scold

Good friends go softly
In your walking
Lest she should wake
And rise up talking
