"Death is certain; the hour unseen."
"Thy Will be Done"
An open book and a single rose adorn the monument.
I think this is a very beautiful gravestone. The elements chosen for the monument are well done and dignified. The metal fencing was seen in several other areas of this cemetery. I wonder if it was placed there long after the death and burial. Since there is a concrete slab covering it and a small footer in place, maybe the entire plot was enclosed later.
