~ In Memoriam ~
In loving memory of our dear son and brother, Walter WEDDE who departed
this life February 14, 1917.
The depth of sorrow we cannot tell,
At the loss of one we loved so well.
And while he lies in peaceful sleep,
His memory we shall always keep.
Day by day we sadly miss him,
Friends may think the wound has healed;
But they little know the grief
That within our heart’s concealed.
He shall never be forgotten;
Never from our memory fade.
Loving hearts will always linger
Around the grave where he is laid.
Sadly missed by all.
The Family.
