'Oh for the touch of a vanished hand...': Alice Stuart 1852 - 1892



The stone reads:
Erected
By
S.W. Stuart, Dublin
In Affectionate
And Loving Memory of
His Beloved Wife
Alice
Who died 27th March 1892.
Aged 40 years

Oh for the touch of a vanished hand
and the sound of a voice that is still.

I heard the voice of Jesus say
Come unto me and rest,
Lay down thou weary one lay down
Thy head upon my breast.
