After seeing Wade's great Tombstone, what would you put on yours?

Mine would say:

Pooljunkie4ever, in this life and next.

Cremation is my plan. I'll leave it to someone else to fill in the blanks.

Funny you made this thread, kind of morbid but I was tinkering with mine a bit and how I would like it to be. This is what I came up with. I think its better than what family and friends might come up with, I actually am in the process of doing one for my grandmother who passed awhile back.

P.S. Yes I have too much time on my hands today. :D

My plan is cremation, and ashes to be in a small container on a wall in a VA Cemetery. One Word will surface "Marine"

One Word will surface

Suffice is maybe what you meant.

I changed my mind on being cremated. Canadian winters are too damn cold and there is no way I want to
end up cold for the rest of my life. Besides, I'm claustrophobic.

I will be cremated, my ashes will be mixed with my hunting dogs ashes and I will be scattered on top of a hill behind the cabin that I grew up in.

I'll take this for my parting remarks.....with thanks to Mr. Prine

Please don't bury me
Down in that cold cold ground
No, I'd druther have "em" cut me up
And pass me all around
Throw my brain in a hurricane
And the blind can have my eyes
And the deaf can take both of my ears
If they don't mind the size
Give my stomach to Milwaukee
If they run out of beer
Put my socks in a cedar box
Just get "em" out of here
Venus de Milo can have my arms
Look out! I've got your nose
Sell my heart to the junkman
And give my love to Rose

Repeat Chorus

Give my feet to the footloose
Careless, fancy free
Give my knees to the needy
Don't pull that stuff on me
Hand me down my walking cane
It's a sin to tell a lie
Send my mouth way down south
And kiss my ass goodbye

I want my headstone to look like a big beer can. It should say something like, "why the hell are you standing here looking at this? Get your ass to the titty bar!" Lol!

Hey, thats a great idea. Maybe your stone could be a Miller Genuine Draft Can and they would pay you in advance for all the advertising for years to come. Probably a free stone too.

Maybe one could say:

Sorry, had to forfeit the last game.

Here lies Darrell
He fired an Air Barrel
He was a fine bloke
And died broke

Or
Here lies Darrell
He fired an Air Barrel
Someone Fired Darrell

Here lies Bill
He was on the hill
Didn't make the last game
Hes Still and on the hill

Cremation and no grave for me.

But.......if I had a tombstone, it would read: "He broke balls all his life".

I would really just like to have my head stuffed, placed on a spring-loaded plate, and have a crank on the side of my headstone. Sort of like a jack-in-the-box.

But pool-related headstone would probably read something along the lines of:

The only stroke I ever had killed me.

Evelyn Wanderone already used that expression to the fluzzie that was hangin with Fatty in TN....she called to tell fats had died, and Ev asked her what he wrote on his tombstone, she paused too long so Evelyn used that expression/Feb/28th/1996 about 6 wks after fats passed.

If in a grave I'd want it in an old country cemetary. The marker would be concrete like one of the old tall skinny highway markers. The words on it would be "The End of the Lost Highway" a name, and a date.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcIgQWdWWag

More and more I'm inclined to leave instructions to be cremated and spread over the wildest most free countryside friends and family can find. Some roam some very isolated back country. I'll also leave instructions to watch the wind, I don't want to go out with somebody's dirty laundry!

I don't care what's on my stone. In fact, I would prefer to have my corpse loaded into a rocket and the shot into the sun. But, I have to say that I like Walter Lindrum's (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Walter_Lindrum) tombstone :

http://www.whitehat.com.au/images/Cemetery/Lindrum.jpg

Mr. Lindrum must have been a hell of an English Billiards (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/English_billiards) player, earning world titles from 1933 until his retirement in 1950.

Sad part of DEATH is in many cases is 90 days after you are gone, you are for the most part forgotten. I plan to visit a buddies grave this weekend in the PHX VET Cemetary, he was also a pretty good pool player, but if I make it this will be my first visit.
