My name is Catherine Marx. Dwight Marx was my father-in-law.

The reason why all the nickles are on the grave stone is that Dwight always used to say, it only takes a nickle to go first class.

Information from Daughter-in-law, Catherine Marx.

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me,
I want no rites in a gloom-filled room.
Why cry for a soul set free?

Miss me a little, and not too long,
And not with your head bowed low.
Remember the love that once we shared.
Miss me – but let me go.

For this journey that we all must take,
And each must go alone,
It is all a part of the Master Plan
A step on the road to Home.

When you are lonely and sick of heart,
Go to the friends we know,
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds;
Miss me – but let me go.
