Poem About Death


Details You Should Know When Drafting A Memorial Epitaph

There are a great number of details that must be attended to when setting up funeral arrangements. Unless someone plans ahead, these responsibilities are usually left to a trusted individual, or to multiple members of the deceased's family. Composing a fitting epitaph is just one of the many tasks that will need to be handled.

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.

Practically every commemorative plaque or stone will bear information identifying the person. In the very least, this includes their name and typically a date for their birth and their death. While some opt to leave it at that, others choose to also add something extra like a sentiment, statement or further details about their life.

These additional statements are quite often short sentiments about how much the individual will be missed, how special they were or wishes for a peaceful afterlife. They might list their familial positions such as child, sibling, parent or spouse, or it may be a record of their time in the military or other organization. Spiritual scripture is also very commonly used.

Some individuals choose to write their own inscription prior to their death. This allows them to ensure that they get exactly what they want on their stone and gives them the freedom to be creative. Those with a keen sense of humor often take this opportunity to make a witty final remark or write an entertaining remark that will bring smiles to visitors for years to come.

Those who write their own might also like to use this as a platform to impart a last bit of wise advice to others. Often this involves encouraging people to be happy and live life well. One can be as creative as they wish with their final statement.
