Emily lost her 35 year old father and one year old youngest sister when she was just eight years old. So knowing how fleeting life can be she wanted to permanently record the existence of her family.

Our names recorded here will stand
Though months and years do fly
But on these tender feeble frames
Will shortly fade and die
