Ok I will admit it I have some strange hobbies, one of them is visiting cemeteries and looking for unusual markers or names listed on head stones. Some people find it weird, morbid and down right creepy. But I find it to be a very relaxing experience. Some cemeteries are so beautiful and peaceful. Others hold such historical significance, or have famous people buried within them. Their final resting places turned into shrines. While others seem to just be there going without a lot of notice. (Rick James for example, The King of Funk, you'd think his grave would attract lots of visitors but it just is not so).

On one of my trips I came across this headstone,

Umm yeah, if I have to venture a guess I would have to say Yes, yes you are gone. This is from a local family that runs a chain of funeral homes no less. The name in combination with the business has always cracked me up. Just to show you that I am not making this up, is the link to their website:

This is one of those things that I have said over and over I should take a picture of and send in to Jay Leno for one of his bits. I think it might have a good chance of actually making it to the air.
