Sacred
to
the memory of
HULDA ELISA
beloved wife of

One precious to my heart is gone
the voice we loved is still
the place made vacant in our home
can nevermore be filled
we miss thee in our circle
we miss thee from thy joy
a shadow on our lives is cast
we miss the sunshine of thy face.
(Transcribed in 1980-81 by volunteers of the Cheboygan County Genealogical Society)
