Campbell, Millie, William and Richard, after being twice wounded, cousin of Private Richard Grenfell, No. 4794, 59th Battalion, who died of wounds received in France on October 30, 1916. They were fighting for their country; They answered duty's call, Their friends, their homes, their comforts, They sacrificed them all. Not now, but in the coming years, It may be in the better land, We'll read the meaning of our tears, And there, sometime, we'll understand. So sadly missed.
