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.
