Home in Heaven

Walnut Grove Cemetery, rural Greene County, Indiana

The epitaph for this 12-year old child speaks to the parent’s grief and the broken “circle” of the family.  There is also a hint that the little girl may have suffered an illness and death brought an end to her pain.

A loved one has gone from

our circle.  On earth we shall

meet her no more.  She has gone

to her home in heaven.  And

all her afflictions are o-er.
