What though in lonely grief we sigh
for forms beloved, no longer nigh?
Submissive still would we reply,
”Thy will be done.”

Harriet Elizabeth Moseley —4 Jul 1900Daughter of
James & Susan Birdsong
Hand in hand when their life was may
Hand in hand when their hair grew gray
Hand in hand when the long night - tide
Gently covered them: side by side
Love is with them forever now
