    What a lovely theme and smooth grid! Nice one Philip 馃槉
    • Philip Chow constructor聽路聽7 days ago
      Thanks Mike! I wanted to do a farewell-themed puzzle for my last day of work, so this is what I came up with. This is also the first puzzle I did with vertical symmetry instead of conventional 180潞 rotational due to the length of the themers

            Fun! Definitely like the tombstone theme!

              thanks! hope the theme wasn't too morbid... i figured since the epitaphs were catchphrases/song lyrics associated with their life, it's a nice way of honoring them
