Although dying is a part of life, it is not always easy to accept. This person was clearly not happy about the end of the road arriving, but at least they accepted it, with a bit of a sarcastic smile.
It says a lot about a person that this is the only message they would leave on their headstone. They seem like someone who gets straight to the point and doesn’t sugarcoat things. They clearly have a sense of humor, and they are probably not very old if this is the phrase they chose to describe their death.
Sad but True
There are a lot of unpleasant realities about death that we don’t like to think about. For example, we are going to be inside a wooden box, six feet underground, covered in dirt. That really is the darkest place anyone can imagine being in.
This person may have feared the final darkness, of the physical and the metaphysical kind. It’s nice that they are using humor as a way of dealing with their fears. Plus, putting the whole thing in quotes as if they were speaking from beyond the grave is both funny and thought-provoking for whoever happens to pass by.
No Room for Error
It’s not easy to find the perfect words to capture everything you feel when a loved one passes away. Some people may find it overwhelming, especially in their time of grief, and are searching for something simple and to the point.
There is no room for error with this one-word design, and while the meaning is crystal clear, the headstone is actually quite unique. The modern cement-style stone, with the funky letter carvings, ends up telling visitors a lot about the deceased and what they liked. Seems like this family didn’t need much text to get their message across.
Location, Location, Location
They say that the most important thing in real estate is location. The view here can’t be beat, and the neighbors really are quiet, plus places with a reputation for being haunted are cheaper. Coming home at night, however, probably wouldn’t be too pleasant, and accommodations are definitely cramped.
It is not a stretch to think that the deceased, in this case, was a realtor, landlord, or someone who dealt with property management. What a funny way to remember the life they spent helping people find their perfect homes.
This couple didn’t want a lot out of their afterlife, they just wanted a place to park. Apparently, Georgetown, where they lived, was plagued by parking problems, and this couple was sick of it. That is definitely something other city dwellers can relate to.
Or maybe they meant a place to park, not only literally but also figuratively. A place to leave their tired mortal shells once they were done with this life. In either case, we hope they have found the perfect parking spot and can remain there forever.
