Words of The Dead
The cemetery in my town is not all that old in the grand scheme of things. This part of the country was not settled until the mid to late 1800's. It does hold a deal of history with the burial site and memorial for Buffalo Soldiers who died in the Indian Wars fighting Quanah Parker. It also has the oft repeated legend of Bloody Mary's Grave that moves from one location to another.
The most disturbing sight in the graveyard to me is the words left etched on a tombstone from the 1930's. I have never been sure as to whether the author wanted to leave words of caution from his Christian Faith to future generations or whether he thought that it would be a kick to spook generations to come. I will leave it for you to decide.
'Remember Now As You Pass By, As You Are Now So Once Was I. As I Am Now, Soon You Must Be. Prepare For Death and Follow Me.'
