Setting up funeral arrangements is a job that entails a long list of details. These are usually left to a responsible member of the deceased's family or various tasks may be assigned to several individuals for less stress on one mourner. A key part of this duty is composing an epitaph worthy of the person it will represent.

This is the information that is inscribed on the gravestone, or commemorative plaque, of one who has passed away. The main purpose for it is to tell visitors a little something about the person interred on that spot. This tribute can be created in numerous different styles all depending on the author and the personality of the honoree.

There are some things that practically each grave marker will have in common. Nearly all will contain the person's full name and the dates that encompassed their life. Though a good many individual's choose to stop at just that basic information, others will opt to say a little extra by including statements, sentiments or personal remarks.

For many, traditional sentiments such as wishes for a peaceful slumber or an explanation of how loved the deceased was is all they add. The statement may be an attestation about their family relations, community work, military service or other accomplishments. It is also quite the popular choice to use a meaningful piece of scripture for this purpose.
