A very sad epitaph from Richard to his wife, Laura...
To thy dear memory, darling and my own,
I build in grief this monumental stone;
All that it tells of life in death is thine,
All that it tells of death in life is mine.
For that which made thy purer spirit blest
In auguish deep has brought me great unrest.
You, dying, live to find life divine,
I, living, die till death shall make thee mine.
So, au revoir, thou true and noble heart!
Quick was the summons, thou didst recieve.
No last farewell did thy dear lips repeat,
In radiant health, at noon, but OH! At eve,
thy kind, gentle heart, no longer beat.
Writing on the stone of life.
Ann's husband...Civil War General William Gregg
What a beautiful life it has been
This one-that has quietly gone to rest
In a halo of sweetness and work well done
And the love of hearts it has blest.
