Tombstones

Hello, some more funnies - this time from tombstone inscriptions.
Enjoy

Seen on a tombstone in England

Remember man, as you walk by,
As you are now, so once was I.
As I am now, so shall you be.
Remember this and follow me.

To which someone replied by writing on the tombstone:
To follow you I'll not consent
Until I know which way you went.

This one from the grave of Ellen Shannon in Girard,
Pennsylvania, is almost a consumer tip:

Here lies Ellen Shannon who was fatally burned March 21, 1870,
by the explosion of a lamp filled with "R.E. Danforth's
Non-Explosive Burning Fluid"
