A tail of a girl..

Oh, to be remembered!

Shakespere wrote many a beautiful epitaph when one of his characters bit the dust; cashed in his chips; went towards the light; checked out; and or otherwise croaked. Who can forget beautiful lines like these:

By medicine life may be prolonged, yet death will seize the doctor too.”

"He is dead and gone, lady, He is dead and gone, At his head a grass-green turf; At his heels a stone. "
William Shakespeare
Source: Hamlet, Act IV, scene v.

"He that dies this year is quit for the next. "
William Shakespeare
Source: King Henry IV

"nothing in his life Became him like the leaving it; he died As one that had been studied in his death To throw away the dearest thing he owed, As 'twere a careless trifle. "
William Shakespeare
Source: Macbeth Act 1, Scene 4

However, I'm not so sure the Bard (or anyone else for that matter), envisioned an obituary quite like this one!
