Stone Details

Stone reads (in part):
The daughter of Jacob and Elisabeth Kaske,
Wife of Christian, married in 1849 and lived
in marriage 13 years.

Verse:
Now I may cry, God, before you,
that you my pious soul,
cut from my heart.
The wound bleeds! bitterly
I lament for you, beloved heart.
God's forced the taking.

O! Jubilant day, you approach to
where I can look upon you in splendor.
With you, beloved soul,
with you, with you resurrected.
With you through all heavens go.
O! My torn away soul.
