    I found this stone a while back, and found this picture again just today. It's a gravestone from the Father of two teenage boys I believe that committed suicide. I took a pic of the poem etched in it.


    If you can't read it that well, here it is typed out. I might've missed a couple words but I'm pretty sure I read it right.

    Beneath this stone the ashes lay
    Of Him that was my darling boy
    Alas, alas his race is run
    Caused by a double barreled gun
    Bereavements sure our heart will break
    Show pity, Lord for Worries sake
    O let me to thy will resign
    Those two unfortunate boys of mine.

    Pretty heartwrenching to see this in real life. If I'm not mistaken, it was also featured in an old copy of Ripley's Believe it or Not.

    Thanks for looking, comments welcome. ^^​
