If epitaphs means what is only on a headstone. I will be buried in a National Cemetery, so only two words. I had “beloved mother” put on my mother’s. I have written my own and my husband’s epitaphs. They are on our WiKiTree profiles, and I have told several realives this. A few years ago I was at a large dinner, and I announced that I had written my obituary. I got several strange looks, so I asked where I was born, and everyone was silent. My brother-in-law passed away eight days ago, and I was given the job of writing his obituary, and I hope I did not leave out anything that he would have wanted me to add.
