      Bishir (large Cross and verse)
      When the evening shades are falling
      And we are sitting all alone
      To our hearts there comes a longing
      If they only would come home.
      To all of us they did their best.

      Roy E. 30 June 1886-29 Aug 1979
      Caroline L. 12 Mar 1886-23 May 1975
