(Front of headstone): An idealist and a dreamer, he died of loneliness and a broken heart, searching for a shrine he never found. LADY GWINAVIER - A loving and faithful friend, she believed in the dream. Born 2-28-1997, died 7-27-2005. It's been said that man is the most evolved of all animals on this planet, or is he? I know of no other living creature that perverts what he knows, and destroys what he does not. (Back of headstone): A parting note for those who may pass by. If you quest for the line between truth and reality, you'll find it in the "Hs" under honor, in the library of ambivalence. Sterling Drake 12-25-1998. (top of headstone): The saddest thing in life is wasted talent. The choises (sic) you make today will change your life forever.
