Edwin Ruch Stone Funeral Text: Ecclesiastes 7 v. 2
It is better to go to the house of mourning, than to go to the house of feasting: for that is the end of all men; and the living will lay it to his heart.

Johann J. Stiegerwald Stone Funeral Text: 1 Chronicles 29 v. 15
For we are strangers before thee, and sojourners, as were all our fathers: our days on the earth are as a shadow, and there is none abiding.
