Balthrop, Clovis Balthrop, Milton Balthrop and Wilson Balthrop; several brothers, sisters .grand children and other relatives, besides a host of friends, May God lay a soothing hand on the loved ones and make their burdens lighter. Our dear f a t h e r from us is gone, A voice that we loved is still, A place is vacant .in his home, Which never can be filled. For m a n y long years he suffered but with patience he bore his p a i n , And we know that someday we'll see Our darling father again. Oh, dear daddy how we miss you We all depended on you so, But now you have l e f t us In this world so f u l l of woe. He is gone but not forgotten Never - w i l l . his memory "ade.

But in heaven there's no sorrow, No pain or death is night, Up there there'll be no parting And we'll never say boodbye. -- By Mrs, M i l t o n Balthrop.
