11279. Reverend Edward E. Knapp
I figure that there are times when someone's final words appear on their tombstone. After all, so many famuos people are credited with them, rightly or not, it would only be fair that less-than-famous people are ultimately deemed quote-worthy as well.
But the sentiment "I'll see you in the morning," while I'm sure it has been used as final words, is also found in hymns:
"I will meet you in the morning on the bright riverside,
When all sorrows have drifted away.
I'll be standing at the portal with the gates open wide
At the close of life's long, dreary day."
Look over the Reverend's shoulders when you visit his stone; that's the Mystic River.
I'm erring on the side of piety with this one.
