Eternity

Located at Elmwood Cemetery in Wagoner, OK.
Eternity
Once a hero brave
and now he lays
beneath the shadow
in the grave
he took with him
all his wealth
and left us nothing
to repay
he holds the charge
against us
until his judgement day.
Revelations 20 - 12
Albert Hoppe


Around the base reads:
In God we trust.

Note: Generally when you see something like "Revelations 20 - 12"  the quote above the citation is from what is stated.  That is not the case here.

Revelations 20:12 is as follows.

And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
