Rate this:
From Canada's foremost graveyard historian comes the first-ever collection of Canadian epitaphs.Strange as it is to say, graveyards are historical documents; they have a lot to say about who we were--and who we are.From the strange and humorous to the majestic and moving, the baldly factual (Horses ran away) to the possibly fantastical (Milicent Milroy, A. M. M. M. / Wife of Edward VIII / Duke of Windsor / 1894-1972), the wildly famous to the completely anonymous, The Final Word chronicles the little-travelled terrain of Canadian grave words with wit, grace, humour, and a fine sense of what a bittersweet thing it is to be mortal.
