Darling Anna (Today's Epitaph)

Anna V.
Wife of J. E. Lowe
Feb 27, 1866
Dec 11, 1891

We miss thee from our home, darling Anna,
we miss thee from thy place.
A shadow o'er our life is cast;
we miss the sunshine of thy face.

Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled,
And in heaven with joy to greet thee,
Where no farewell tear is shed.

A beautiful poem! I always wonder when I see a personalized poem like this if it was written by a family member.
