The Final Prediction
Archer, Odd Fellow or Valhalla?

Q: Have you chosen your epitaph and where will you be entombed?

A: I will be entombed in my home town where I was born... Princeton, Indiana, where the White, Patoka and Ohio Rivers converge. It will be either in the Archer Cemetery or the Odd Fellows. I am yet to decide as I have a space in both. I had chosen my epitaph, "All we golden boys and girls must, as chimney sweeps, return to dust!" but now I have chnaged it to "World weary Criswell Predicts, Back home again in Indiana!" However I do not plan to make use of this tomb for some time, as my plans at the present time are endless!

[ - from "Criswell Answers the 101 Questions Most-Often Asked Him" in The Next Ten Years: Criswell Predicts, 1969, Droke House, pg. 75.]

As noted in Monday's post, when this week-long series began, Criswell is buried in Valhalla Memorial Park in North Hollywood, CA.; the marker on his wall crypt reportedly reads "Criswell Predicts."

Thus ends this Criswell retrospective, and none too soon for some of you.
Oh, ye of little patience!
I predict I shall inflict you with my own nonsense beginning tomorrow!

Have a great Saturday...
