"As I am" tombstone--just in time for Halloween

Yes, this is a real tombstone-in Boston. The inscription reads:

Here lies buried the body

of Mr Thomas Williston

who exchanged this life

for a better August 31st

1775 Aged 75 years

Stop here, my friend & cast an Eye
As you are now so once was I
As I am now so you will be
Prepare for Death and follow Me


Gulp! Makes ya stop and think...

Hi Mama Bird! I was doing a Google search for an image of an empty nest and your blog came up. Since I am a brand-new empty nester (it's been just 24 hours) I look forward to reading through your entries to see what you've experienced. So if your reader stats show someone browsing around for a few hours, you'll know it's just me -- not a stalker! *g*

He who drives
