As carefree children we roamed this land.
In marriage we walked hand in hand.
We persued our professions of  teaching and law.
And now we rest in Spavinaw.

Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all.
-Alfred Lord Tennyson

The Moving Finger writes and having writ moves on
neither piety nor wit shall lure it back to cancel
half a line nor all thy tears wash out a word of it.
- Rubaiyat Omar Khayyam

May this hallowed ground be blest
My beloved princess is at rest.
- From an Indian Manuscript

O Grave! Where is thy victory?
O Death! Where is thy sting?
- Alexander Pope

The pains of death are past
Labour and sorrow cease
And life's long warfare closed at last
Thy soul is found in peace.
