We can’t vouch for the authenticity of the story of this man’s death, but after reading his headstone, we are convinced that he was living his life to the fullest.
One thing is for sure; the man loved women. And judging by his headstone, women loved him back. Or at least that’s what he would have us all think.
Only Killing Time
Many of us have used the phrase "I’m going to kill you" when someone made us angry, but we never actually meant it literally. It’s just a figure of speech. Apparently, when Robert Clay Allison said those words, he actually meant them.
Allison didn’t exactly lead an exemplary life. He was a notorious gunfighter who spent much of his life drinking and one time shot himself in the foot. At least his headstone puts a little smile on the face of those who read it.
Someone Had Other Plans
Jerry and Jeannette seem like a couple that loved living in the moment and going on adventures together. One such adventure that never got to actually happen is living a telenovela script.
We are sure, however, that once Jeannette joins her late husband, the two will have a score of other adventures to experience together.
Making a Comeback
Fans of zombie films would love this item on our list, and not for the inscription, but for the overall design. This ancient Roman-inspired design can be found on the grave of none other than famous French writer Jules Verne.
Located in Amiens, France, Verne's tomb, with the statue of him rising from it, is something that can be added to his legacy. Much like his numerous literary pieces of work.
As a Texan casket maker, you could count on Willet Babcock to have a grave like no one else, and boy, did he deliver. Before his death, he asked Gustave Klein, an extraordinary stonecutter, for a special mount for his grave.
Some of the elements that the statue includes are a Cross and some angles, but the most impressive element of all is Jesus's figure, which in proper Texas spirit, is wearing cowboy boots.
