J.S. Whitby15 Jun 1886 —27 Dec 1918Died in France
Nobly he fell while fighting for liberty
WHITBY
I cannot say, and I will not say,
That he is dead - he is just away.
With a cheery smile and a wave of the hand,
he has wandered into an unknown land.
And left us dreaming how very fair
It needs must be, since he lingers there.
Mild and gentle, as he was brave,
when the sweetest love of his life he gave.
Think of him as the same, I say;
He is not dead - he is just away.
Notes: This stone/monument is approx. 10 ft. tall, and quite elaborate. The text in quotation marks are inscribed on the back and side of the monument.
