Sorrow recorded on Stone

I saw this Gravestone in Preston Cemetery and found myself thinking about the sorrow that must have been felt by the Greenwood family. So many young ones spent but a short time on earth!

So sad to have lost so many and so young.

Far more than their fair share. Hard times indeed. Hard to imagine their grief, and yet they kept trying... hope springs eternal ?

What a life of heartbreak. I can imagine starting out with an optimistic outlook and then slowly being crushed by life's cruel events. Looks like the parents didn't live so long either.
