A riddle

I saw this tombstone at the Pioneer Cemetery in Sierra Madre Monday and it fascinated me.

Who are these people? What’s the story? Here’s the inscription:

“Donald Phillips

Nov 9, 1904

Anna Phillips

Aug. 7, 1918 Jan. 24, 1938

My darling

Four months bride

Angel of my dreams

Rest in God’s love

And mine
