You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of May 6, we are $2,380 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today to join dozens of other supporters in making this important overhaul possible!

Ewige Treue

Language: German (Deutsch)

Reißt mich einmal der Tod von deiner Seite,
so tröste dich und denke froh zurück
an alles das, was uns vereint erfreute,
an ein vergang’nes ungetrübtes Glück!

Und komme auch an schönen Sommertagen
und knie auf meinem kleinen Hügel hin,
und laß die Blumen auf dem Grab dir sagen,
daß ich noch immer, immer gut dir bin.

Ikuinen uskollisuus

Language: Finnish (Suomi) after the German (Deutsch)

Jos kuolema joskus riistää minut viereltäsi,
niin lohduttaudu ajattelemalla iloisesti
kaikkea sitä, mistä yhdessä iloitsimme,
mennyttä häiriintymätöntä onnea!

Ja tule joskus kauniina kesäpäivinä
polvistu pienelle kummulleni,
ja anna haudan kukkien kertoa,
että aina, aina rakastan sinua.
