An unknown author has written:
"Write injuries in dust, benefits in marble."
To the dust we bequeath...
Every slight received
Every word that caused a frown
Every act that sowed ill feelings
Every thought that forced us down.
In marble we shall inscribe...
Every warm caress from our family
Every word of encouragement from
Every act of kindness given
Every blessing from God on high.
Blow away old dust, as quickly as you can
Let our monuments of marble eternally stand.
