Today's Epitaph: Fannie Powell's Sleeping Dust

Fannie Hill
Wife of W. I. Powell
Born Oct 5, 1864
Died Aug 5, 1895
Kind angels watch her sleeping dust,
Till Jesus comes to raise the just;
Then may she wake with sweet surprise,
And in her Saviour's image rise.

Hillcrest Cemetery (aka Reynolds City Cemetery)
Taylor County, Georgia

I think so, too! I actually photographed it during my first time around the cemetery. Then I went back to it for more!
