What will be written on your grave?

Here lies

What is an epitaph?

An epitaph refers to text that is inscribed on a tombstone. Many of the best epitaphs are very short, such as one or two lines. While there is no specific format for the information that must be included, keeping the epitaph short challenges the writer to sum up your life.

Tailor the emotion of the epitaph to what you want to be remembered by. Epitaphs may be humorous, ironic, or heartfelt. Whatever its emotional mode, it’ll be your last words.
