The words of "The Death of Little Kathy Fiscus" written and recorded by Jimmie Osborne in 1949 are:
On April the 8th, the year ‘49,
Death claimed a little child, so pure and so kind,
Kathy they called her, met her doom that day,
I know it was God that called her away.
Playmates with Kathy were all having fun,
The story was told, they all started to run,
And as they looked back, she wasn't there,
It’s so sad to think of this tragic affair.
Just like a beast in the forest that day,
The abandoned well took Kathy away,
For over two days the well was her tomb,
Everyone kept praying they’d get her out soon.
Thousands were there from far and from near,
Workmen they struggled against sadness and fear,
But after two days their hope grew so weak,
They called down to Kathy but she never did speak.
After working so hard both day and night,
Digging for hours, she came into sight,
The little darling was dead, her life it was gone,
Now in San Marino there’s a heartbroken home.
I'm sure she's an angel in God's peaceful fold,
Playing with children in a mansion of gold,
As I stand alone, humbly I bow,
I know Kathy’s happy up there with God now.
Her grave marker reads:
KATHRYN ANNE FISCUS
ONE LITTLE GIRL
WHO UNITED THE WORLD
FOR A MOMENT
AUG. 21, 1945 - APR. 8, 1949
