Speaking of epitaphs (see Stuart's post) here is one that is said to have been written on a gravestone somewhere in the UK:<P>Listen oh man that passeth bye<BR>As you are now, so once was I<BR>As I am now, so shalt thou be<BR>Prepare thyself to follow me<P>Someone else had written below it:<P>To follow you is not my intent<BR>Unless I know which way you went.<BR>.......................<P>As for my eptiaph? "I told you I was sick"<P>that should make everyone feel nice and guilty.
