    Rowe-In loving memory of a dear husband Russell Rowe who passed away August 16, 1987.
    In a quiet country graveyard
    Where the gentle breezes blow
    There lies the one I loved so dearly
    Whom I lost 3 years ago
    Your resting place I visit
    Put flowers there with care
    But no one knows the hurt inside
    When I turn and leave you there.
    Lovingly remembered by wife Stella Rowe.
