IN  MEMORIAM
----------
CROSLEY  AND  COCHRAN
----------
          In memory of my sister,  Leona Cochran,  and my mother,  Mrs. Rosetta Crosby.  One by one, they go before us.  They are fading like the dew, but we know they're watching o'er us.  They are the good, the fair, the true.  They are waiting for us only, where no pain can ever mar.  Dear ones who left us lonely watch us through the gates afar.  There a sister, there a mother, gone within those gates ajar.  Sadly missed by  Mrs. Elizabeth Reed.
