Rudy
WILLIAM R. MILLER, JR.

TO LAUGH OFTEN AND LOVE MUCH; TO WIN THE RESPECT OF INTELLIGENT PERSONS AND THE AFFECTION OF CHILDREN; TO EARN THE APPROBATION OF MOST CRITICS AND TO ENDURE THE BETRAYAL OF FALSE FRIENDS; TO APPRECIATE BEAUTY; TO FIND THE BEST IN OTHERS; TO GIVE OF ONE'S SELF; TO LEAVE THE WORLD A BIT BETTER, WHETHER BY A HEALTHY CHILD, A GARDEN PATCH OR A REDEEMED SOCIAL CONDITION; TO HAVE PLAYED AND LAUGHED WITH ENTHUSIASM AND SUNG WITH EXULTATION; TO KNOW THAT EVEN ONE LIFE HAS BREATHED EASIER BECAUSE YOU HAVE LIVED --- RUDY, YOU HAVE SUCCEEDED.
-RALPH WALDO EMERSON
Note: The monument consists of a large shiny black granite cross mounted on a dark gray granite base. There are 2 granite urns on the base flanking the cross. The name, "Rudy", is apparently a facsimile of the deceased's signature. There is a stylized image of a white dove on the cross. The quotation from Emerson is inscribed on the base.
