Dear Mamie You've Left Me as an Angel Leaves (Today's Epitaph)

Mamie E.
Wife of T. E. Rogers
b. Sept 9, 1875
d. June 25, 1909
I especially like the epitaph on Mamie Rogers' tombstone in Henderson Baptist Church Cemetery (Henderson, GA) because it's a note from a husband to a wife:

Dear Mamie you've left me as an angel leaves. You have gone where angels go. I try to realize my loss, your gain. Still bitter tears will flow. - Eddie
