We will go to your grave
Since your spirit has fled
And you, too, are along with the dead!
The heart that we loved so
Is turning to clay.
The hearts that have loved you
Are heavy with grief!
While in Crathorn's dark dunes
You are faing [fading] away.

IM MEMORY OF A CHILD
Eugene Lloyd, little son of Mr. And Mrs. George Gabel Died Oct. 31, 1908 age 7 yrs. 21 days.
The little crib is empty now,
The little clothes laid by,
A father’s hope, a mother’s love,
In death’s cold hand doth lie.
God needed one more angel child
Amidst his shinning band,
And so, he stopped with loving smile
And clasped our Lloydie’s hand.
