Beneath This Stone is Interred the Dust which was Once a Lovely Form (Tombstone Tuesday)

I found this unique stone in Oakview Cemetery in Albany, Georgia. This young lady was obviously well loved and missed, and her epitaph says as much.

Consecrated To The Memory Of
Nella Vason Jones
Beloved Daughter Of Edward V. & Marla M. Jones
Who Departed This Life The
30th Day Of November 1968
Aged 19 Years

Fair Stranger Whose Feet Have
Wandered To This Land Of Silence
Contemplate This Stone. Beneath
It Is Interred The Dust Which Was
Once A Lovely Form, Inhabited By
A Mind Superior In Intelligence
Worth And Amiableness To Most
Of Her Sex. As A Daughter, Sister
Or Friend Few Whom she Left Behind
Can Boast So Bright An Example.
