I have no words for this situation
People back then either had a better sense of humor concerning death than we do; or they had no sense of humor at all and were dead (pardon the pun) serious.
A little different, but also humorous.
Graves of the 16th & 17th centuries, at least that far back, often had inscriptions we today would find funny, poignant, or spooky. Christ’s Church graveyard, Wesley’s church, at St. Simons is an example.
