In Loving Memory of Mary Reeves
the widow of the late Jim Reeves

from members of the Jim Reeves fan club
 

Below the plaque with Mary's  name and dates of birth and death, you'll find part of the  poem 'TO A SKYLARK' by Percy Busshe Shelley (1792-1822):

In the golden lightning

Of the sunken sun

Oer which clouds are brightening,

Thou doth float and run

Like an unbodied joy whose race is just begun
