You can use this for inspiration if you need to.

  1. Our Girl Peg

    She was sickly but sweet.
    Unsteady on her feet.
    Such a young age, though very brave.
    Now she really has one foot in the grave.

    *Inspired by your prosthetic leg, well, your neighbor’s mom’s prosthetic leg, but you know what I mean…

  2. (Apologies for the overload of entries. I entertained myself on a 20-plus hour drive from Wisconsin to Florida thinking about this contest. ;) )

  3. Here lies A. Arm

    She couldn’t afford to bury The Leg

    I miss you. (that’s not the epitaph, but I suppose it could be) I am working on a $850M cell service upgrade project and it made me think of you. It made me think that about $100M is probably attributed just to you and your tweets. Could you kindly leave some G’s for the rest of the country? That should be one of the tombstones, here lies 4G, it wasn’t enough for Jen’s tweets. I am glad I took a moment to pop by, you never disappoint.

  4. Anita Newdock
    Here lies a promiscuous lady
    Who went to a doctor so shady
    that when she was dyin’
    he was chatting online
    And now she’s probably in Hades.
