My favoite two, both from Mark Twain:

Death is the starlit strip between the companionship of yesterday and the reunion of tomorrow.

&

The Impartial Friend: Death, the only immortal who treats us all alike, whose pity and whose peace and whose refuge are for all--the soiled and the pure, the rich and the poor, the loved and the unloved.

My wishes are clear I hope... 

When I die, bury me upside-down, so the world can kiss my ass.

And if you're buried with said body part exposed, it can double as a bike parking rack :)

If I do it right there won't be enough left of me to bury.....or burn.

I've got a button which has a good epitaph for a brewer:

"I'm not aging, I'm fermenting."
