Back of headstone reads:
Dear C.J., Before us stood a man with a large black hat, oil duster, and boots. Yet all we could see was a little boy with a devilish grin, who always seemed to be in some kind of mischief. Our lives are a little dimmer now without you. With broken hearts and tears we must say good-night, our sweet prince, and give you your wings to fly.
Love, Mom and Dad
Baby Brother, What I have to say to you, you now can read from my mind and feel in my heart. But there is one thing I will always tell you aloud. I love you C.J., I always have and I always will.
Love, Your Big Sissy "$2"
