Inscription: Behold the Western evening light! It melts in evening gloom! So calmly Christians sink away, Descending to the tomb, The winds breathe low, the withering leaf Scarce whispers from the tree. So gently flows the parting breathe, When good men cease to be. // In memory of Nathan Parker Coburn [BH1896, BJ1896, BP1896]
