In Memory of Charles Ward (Today's Epitaph)

(From Lowestoft, England - 1770)

In Memory of Charles Ward
who died May 1770
aged 63 years
A dutiful Son
A loving Brother
An affectionate Husband

This stone was not erected by
Susan his Wife. She erected a stone
to John Salter her second husband
forgetting the affection of Charles
Ward, her first Husband.

I'm not even sure what to say about that!
