tombstone inscription

This has quite a story to it.  The photo is by Eva Searcy, an acquaintance who is a photographer.  Thanks to her talent, I have this photo with the inscriptions superimposed.  It reads:  My good people, as you pass by, As you are now so once was I  As I am now you soon must be.  Prepare yourselves to follow me.
This is a touching verse - especially on the tomgstone of a 17 year old. 
However, I have been unsure as to how to use it - though several customers indicated they liked this bg.  I created it using an unmounted stamp whose identity has vanished - I sort of masked some portions and stamped various parts of the stamp randomly.  I do not do well with random stamping, but I think this worked.  I may try it again with black and white.  Now - what verse for the inside????  I used a die for the middle strip and the corner treatment.
  Dies and distress:
