Inscrutable inscriptions

People often have rather nice but ordinary statements like “together forever” or “at rest” inscribed on stones. ¬†Sometimes, they go for a favorite poem or a verse from a religious text. ¬†And then there are the ones that make it clear something dramatic and tragic happened, but most of the story remains an enigma.

This one says, Can’t help but feel the sorrow at such a tragic end. Hope you have reached your peace in death. I pray you live forever free.

I don’t know the details of this person’s life and death, but I second that emotion.
