Sleeping Baby Headstone - Oak Hill Cemetery

Time has slowly worn away the details.
Standing above the stone, the scrulpture evoked
a strong maternal feelings in me.

The family plot -- Nellie and Daisy Bostick and their parents,
Mary and George.

Ulrich Bartels - Oakhill Cemetery - Grand Rapids, MI

Bob and I were searching for a headstone for a findagrave request and found this beautiful child's grave. It is shaped like a casket and has a beautiful inscription on the side.

Are for pious parents never lost.
