A friend of mine once asked me to write my own obituary, saying what I want left behind to be remembered by.
Tombstone Epitaph, Tombstone,Arizona 1888
The Breed known as Jess passed over today. His last words were to his long time friend and companion, Tippy, the Mule.
He said "Old hoss, it's been interestin. Though I've wronged some folks, it was unintentional and though my mistakes were plenty, I made the best decision I could, with the knowledge I had, each time. I've made some good friends and even better enemies. I've laughed and sang more times than I've cried. And yuh know sumpthin hoss? I wouldn't change a durn thing!"
She came into this world smiling and she left the same way.....her heart was lite....and she will see true friends...holding a piece of sweetgrass in one hand and a smile in the other...you know who you are...pity the uglys....sad for the broken halo's.....and all that befriend them
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming...DAMN! What a ride!
