The Pearce memorial was created in 1861 by Richard Cockle Lucas. It depicts the Three Graces - Faith, Hope and Charity. The inscription below one reads - 

‘Now abideth Faith, Hope and Charity

These Three but the greatest of these is Charity’

The Pearces were bankers. This memorial must have been expensive. Maybe they gave to charity?……..

Oh, God, I’m a cliché,” he said in despair. “Why do I care? If Dad decides he hates me because I’m not straight, he’s not worth the pain, right?”
“Don’t look at me,” said Jace. “My adoptive father was a mass murderer. And I still worried about what he thought. It’s what we’re programmed to do. Your dad always seemed pretty great by comparison.”
“Sure, he likes you,” said Alec. “You’re heterosexual and have low expectations of father figures.”
“I think they’ll probably put that on my gravestone. ‘He Was Heterosexual and Had Low Expectations.’

Thomas Jefferson’s tombstone lists several of his greatest accomplishments, but leaves out the fact that he was President of the United States.

Jefferson wrote out specific instructions for a monument to be erected at his grave site, and described the exact text to be displayed by saying:

“On the faces of the Obelisk the following inscription, & not a word more

HERE WAS BURIED
THOMAS JEFFERSON
AUTHOR OF THE DECLARATION OF AMERICAN INDEPENDENCE
OF THE STATUTE OF VIRGINIA FOR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM
AND FATHER OF THE UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA.

because by these, as testimonials that I have lived, I wish most to be remembered.”

He died months later, on the 4th of July, 1826 - coincidentally the same exact day John Adams died. Adams’ last words were “Thomas Jefferson survives,” which was incorrect, because he’d died 5 hours prior.
