Epitaphs & headstone inscriptions

Headstones or grave markers typically have inscriptions, like the name of the deceased and their date of birth and death. It's also common to have an epitaph. This is a short text that honors the deceased. This inscription could be as simple as Rest in Peace or a favorite passage or prayer. Headstone inscriptions are a way to honor the dead, and they're typically chosen by the family.
