Eulogy and headstones

Here lies Jane Smith, Wife of Thomas Smith, marble cutter.
This monument was erected by her husband as a tribute to her memory and a specimen of his work. Monuments of this style are $250.

The wedding day appointed was
The wedding clothes provided,
But ere the day did come,
Alas! He sickened and he died, did!

Here lies the mother of 28.
She might have had more,
 but now it's too late.

Some have children,
others, have none.
Here lies the mother of 21.
