Inside the gazebo is a 4 sided monument with a small girl with arms uplifted (La Brezza). A bronze plaque is on the monument.
    And in that quiet garden-
    The garden of her heart-
    Songbirds are always singing-
    Their songs of cheer apart.
    And from it floats forever,
    o'ercoming sin and strife,
    sweet as the breath of roses
    blown,
    the fragrance of her life.
    Our Beloved
    Marcia Jean Cantrell

At the iron gate to the cemetery is a Bronze plaque.

"If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer.  Let Him step to the music he hears however measured or far away."

This is a very well kept cemetery.
