Inscription

‘In Affectionate Remembrance from his beloved wife
In Loving memory of CHARLES WEBB who died  Nov. 15 1896 aged 61 years.’

“A light from the household is gone
A voice we loved is stilled.
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.”

“The Lord hath need of him.”

‘Also JANE WEBB died Oct. 2. 1922 aged 76 years.’

“Gone but not forgotten”
