An angel standing and holding an open book. One side, for Petre Grecia, reads “sus desconsolados esposa, hijos y nietos, ruegan (?) al piadoso lector una oracion por el eterno descanso de su alma.” On the other page, the bereaved wails the name of their dear departed, Segunda, and affirms that she lives in their memories (“Segunda! no has muerto! Vives siempre en la memoria de tu madre, hermanos y sobrinos. descansa en paz que todos velamos por ti” ).
