He was prepared

The tablet marker at the grave of Rev. Andrew Kinnear (b. 1781, d. 1845) seems rather plain—until you read the inscription. The sentiment may be common, but it is not commonly inscribed on a gravestone.

IN Memory oF Rev.
called to depart this
life suddenly, but not
without being prepared.
Oct. 30, 1845.
Aged 65 Years
& 10 Months.

Andrew Kinnear his wife, Dinah, had eleven children, two of whom were Methodist ministers like their father. [1]
