I can’t find an exact source for the epitaph for Julia Crawford, but Christ is frequently characterized as the bridegroom and a Christian or the church as his bride.
The epitaph on this stone is from the Te Deum, a hymn that remains in use in the modern Catholic church as well as some of the Protestant sects. It dates to approximately the 4th century.
Now I need all of you to be honest with me. How many of you clicked on the link because it sounds like a line from The Boondock Saints?
Grace Maud Fiske was a second grade teacher at the Lakeview School in Collinwood, Ohio, when the famous fire occurred on March 4, 1908. Following her valiant attempts to save her charges, Fiske was pulled from the school, two children’s bodies still wrapped her skirts in an attempt to protect them, but she died at Glenville Hospital. The teacher was just 26 years old and lived at home with her parents on Orville Avenue in Cleveland.
