I've often (because I'm strange) walked through cemeteries and graveyards reading the names and dates on the headstones. From time to time there are epitaphs, but mostly, just names and dates. I've wondered what it would be like if, as you stood next to each grave, the spirit of that person rose to tell you his or her story.

So, tell us a story of death. It doesn't have to be graphic, eerie, or even (heaven forbid) morbid. But an interesting story of a life that lived...on its last day.
