Oh, what hosts of memories rise, sadness dims an old mans eyes"
Colin was sent to Scotland to get educated at a very young age and never saw is mother again, in his old age he came looking for her but she had died approximately 10 years before. So he erected the momunment for her. When he died he requested that he be buried in the same grave and it was requested.
