"Blessed are the Dead"

The epitaph on this grave in Georgetown Cemetery may seem a bit macabre (well hey, what do you expect from a rock that's sitting on top of a dead person in a box underneath the soil?) but it's actually from Revelations 14-13:

"And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them."

Then again, the Bible also says "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the Earth".

Then again again, Stiv Bators said "Meek inherits Earth six feet deep".
