Tombstone Tuesday: Our darling Onno

Tombstone Tuesday: Our darling Onno

A beautiful grave monument in Zeist. A translation of the inscription:

Here rests our darling Onno, born 7 July 1883, died 14 May 1887. The Lord gave, and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.

I suspect little Onno is Pieter Feijo Onno Sickinghe, son of Onno Joost Sickinghe and Johanna Ignatia Jacoba Nepveu tot Ameijde, who died, three years old, on 14 May 1887 in Zeist.

The flat stone in front of the monument, that presumably commemorates relatives of Onno, is unfortunately unreadable.

The epitaph, by the way, is from the first chapter of Job.
