Graveyard Rabbits Carnival – November 2009 Edition

Welcome to the November 2009 edition of graveyard rabbits carnival. 

November 2nd is “Plan Your Epitaph Day,” an international observance created by Lance Hardie, to coincide with All Saint’s Day (a.k.a. Day of the Dead).  So, the challenge for this edition was to write your own epitaph.  What would you like to see on your gravestone?  How would you like people to remember you?

Six bloggers accepted the challenge and came up with interesting and unique epitaphs.  Be sure to check out each of them and learn a little bit more about the bloggers through their epitaphs.

Cyndi Beane Henry presents My Epitaph posted at Mountain Genealogists, saying, "Here lies The Texicanwife! An epitaph you'll want to share!"

Midge Frazel presents Epitaphs posted at Granite in My Blood, saying, "Is the epitaph on a gravestone more important than the name and the dates? Check out the Tombstone Generator application to create your own."

Kastie presents Graveyard Rabbits Carnival Epitaph Submission posted at Katzie's Blog, saying, "I've always planned on being cremated, but have envisioned being buried beneath a stone angel with beautiful wings spread out behind her as she kneels over my grave bearing a mournful smile and holding a large cross over her shoulder."

Carly Blundell presents My Epitaph posted at Not Another Family History Blog.

Janet Iles presents Carnival of Graveyard Rabbits - Epitaph posted at Graveyard Rabbit of Grey County, Ontario, saying, "The marker at Janet's final resting place does not have room for an epitaph but if it did, she shares what words might be written there."

Angela B Deller presents Graveyard Rabbits Carnival - Plan Your Epitaph Day posted at What Was Their Story, saying, "My epitaph - simple and succinct."

That concludes this edition. Past posts and future hosts can be found on our blog carnival index page.  Be sure to join us for the next edition!
