Inscription

. . . . . . . . . .
Her Sufferings ended
With the day
Yet lived she at its close.
And breathed the long
long night away
In Statue like repose.
But when the sun
in all its state,
Illumined the eastern
skies
She passed through
Glorys morning Gold
And walked in
Paradise.
. . . . . . . . . .
Transcribed by her 2nd great-granddaughter, Angie Moore (1947-2006).
