ENGRAVED IN STONE - epitaph humor dedicated to the volunteers of hospice care everywhere.

"I wrote this book for four principal reasons. First and foremost, as a fundraiser for hospice care; secondly, I want to raise awareness of the wonderful work done by so many selfless volunteers giving care and comfort to the dying. If you want to know more about this, please click on the links to the right. Thirdly, the book was written to amuse and entertain. Lastly, I hope that reading the book will inspire you to reflect on how you would like to be remembered and to live up to your own expectations.

To give care and comfort to the dying is important work. It is the kind of work that defines our essential humanity. So, a book of epitaphs - some of them flippant and humorous - might seem like an odd and, some might say, disrespectful way to pay tribute to those who are both the agents and beneficiaries of hospice care.

Yet death is the one unavoidable reality. It is the endpoint at which our lives achieve a final perspective. And epitaphs,
I believe, are simply an expression of this. They are ultimately celebratory and life-affirming.

So I hope that in reading this book, you will find time to pause (with the occasional smile), and consider the wonderful legacy of those who left us." - Jo Erickson, Uxbridge 2004
