Catling Emma 2147 655.jpg

EMMA CATLING (1846-1882)

"IN AFFECTIONATE REMEMBRANCE OF Emma Catling, Wife of Edward Catling, Who departed this life November 20th, 1882, AGED 35 YEARS. And was interred at Bicker Church November 23, 1882.
Farewell husband, brothers, sisters dear,
I am not dead but sleeping here;
Short was my life, long is my rest,
God took me where he thought best.

Farewell dear husband, my life is past,
I loved you faithfully to the last;
Grieve not for me, nor sorrow make,
But love my children for my sake.

With the Family's kind regards."
