Tombstone Tuesday: Leaving three young children to mourn her loss...

Often I am drawn to stones such as this one, not purely for the look of the stone, but for the message on it. Although the angel which stands atop this stone is spectacular, it is the reference to the three young children who were left to mourn the loss of their young mother which leaves the greatest mark.

Child of our heart's best love farewell...

The stone reads:

In Affectionate Remembrance

Aged 11 Years.

Child of our heart's best love farewell,
On earth adieu to thee,
Thy sweet young happy form and face,
Live but in memory.

Mary Catherine, John & Francis
Who died young.

Erected by their fond mother.
