COLLIER. - In loving memory of our loving son, John Thomas Collier, killed in action in France on the 10th day of October, 1917.
Gone is the face we loved so dear,
Gone is the voice we long to hear;
Far too far from sight or speech,
But not too far for thoughts to reach.
 - From Father, Mother, Brothers and Sisters.
