A Strong Warning

Old Dutch Church Burying Ground, Sleepy Hollow, New York

The red sandstone gravestone of William Tompkins and Sally Tompkins in the Old Dutch Burying Ground at Sleepy Hollow, New York, has an epitaph that is a stern message and a strong warning for those who are still alive:

Go home dear friends dry up your tears

We must lie here till Christ appears

Repent in time whle you have

Theirs (sic) no repentance in the grave.
