The Amish…In Their Own Words

Amish graveyard in Lancaster County, PA

In their own words…

Found on a tombstone in Rhode Island: “Under the sod and under the trees lies the body of Jonathan Pease. He is not here, there’s only the pod. Pease shelled out and went to God.” Scribe from Applecreek, Ohio

In their own words…

On the east edge of town is a very large cemetery and a casket business next to the road. In front of the store is a large tombstone facing oncoming traffic which reads, “Drive with care, we can wait.” Scribe from Bloomfield, Iowa
