Gregory, I am amazed at the prolificity of your created epitaphs - each one a comic gem. Take this as a commendation of all of them.

G'day Gregory … this potential epitaph would see it erected sooner than I'd like if I got caught writing your poem - thanks for the cackle - Lindsay

Ha! You figured that out, lol ... I was on a roll, (and I didn't even post all of them, haha!) ... a bit of a different tack for me, but highly enjoyable. The nose!! Just for me ... awww, you're sweet! One of the many reasons I love Brits. ;-) <3
