One of the sad things about any love affair, whether it’s a marriage or not, is that eventually one of the two people involved in it runs out of steam, so to speak.
No one lives forever. We all know this and yet it never ever gets any easier when we lose someone we love.
There is an aura that surrounds death that tends to portray it as a solemn and somewhat ethereal experience, and who the hell am I to argue with that? But, sometimes, if we let it, humor can play a part too.
After all, so much of loving another person in this world is about the smiles they brought to our faces and the millions of times they cracked us up with something funny they said or something silly they did, or by just looking at us in that certain, particular way that only they could do.
It hurts so much to say goodbye.
Yet, we remember why we were with that person in the first place, and that always shines a light on the fact that so much of our time together was hilarious and dripping with joy.
In honor of all that, and the fact that it’s Halloween time again, I thought it might be pretty great to have a look at some of the really comical tombstones out there in the world, because a lot of them are downright magnificent.
And because they are the perfect reminder that so many people who we love and lose still want us to keep on smiling, even long after they’re not around to laugh alongside us anymore.
And I really, really like that.
