Brown - In loving memory of Corporal George Brown, the beloved husband of Kate Brown, who died of wounds received in France, May 24th 1918. He suffered patiently and long, his hope was bright, his faith was strong; 'Till God above saw what was best, and took him home with Him to rest; O sacred heart of Jesus, how heavy is my cross, 'tis Thee alone who knoweth my sad and bitter loss. However long my life shall last, whatever land I view; Whatever joys or cares be mine, I will remember you. - From loving Wife and Children; also Dad, Sisters and Brothers.
