Inscription:
85y 4m 26d

"The strife is o'er the loved of years, To _____ our yearning hearts had grown,
Hath left us with life's gathering fears
To struggle darkly and alone. Yet mourn her not! The voice of woe
Befits not this her triumph hour.
Let sorrow's tears no longer flow
For life eternal is her bower."
