A stone found in this cemetery is the marker for two children, one about four years old, the other one year old. A little time on earth they spent, Till God for them His angel sent, And then on time they closed their eyes, To awake to glory in the skies. Notice the dove design which symbolizes purity and peace. Many children's graves also have sculptured lambs upon them. The lamb, as a symbol of Christ, is one of the favorite, and most frequently used, symbols in all periods of Christian art, especially for little children. It symbolizes both Christ as the Lamb of God, and more particularly in this instance, Christ, the Good Shepherd.
