Make Your Own Gravestone

Dick Eastman posted about a web site that creates a three-line gravestone image that you can download and save. Dick also is running a contest for the best gravestone lines and will change the image on his blog every day, then will finally choose the best one for permanent "visibility" on his blog post.

The web site to make your own gravestone image is here. Dick posted a Tiny URL for the site as

I gave this a try - and came up with one based on an old tagline:

And one for my own gravestone:

It is difficult to create short lines with only 15-20 letters in the top two lines, and 20-25 letters in the third line. I imagine that this was conceived such that a person would put a name on the first line, dates on the second line, and a pithy comment on the third line.

There are all sorts of things you could put on something like this and publicize - think about politics, sports, literature, etc.

What can you come up with? If you have a good one, submit it to Dick's post. Or create your own post. Have fun!
