In the light of God, we see you, dear mother. Each night as we lie down. We hear your voice as when on earth, And see each smile and frown. And when we are called to join you This world and we are through We pray the Lord to let us go As peaceful and brave as you. Rest on In peace, dear mother. Your sufferings now are o'er. Tou have received the crown of righteousness The Lord had for you laid up in store. For the good deeds you were always doing The kind words you had for one and all, Tou are safe, we know, and were ready to go. When you heard the Master call. Tou don't know the sorrows to be left alone Til God sends a message to vour home. It's sad when He calls for one or the other But the worst blow of all Is when He calls your Mother. Sadly missed by Daughters: Catherine Wicht Emma Kohl. 8 "FLOWERS TO FIT THE OCCASION" SMITH, Florist Stanley Sates, Prop. 750 SOMERSET STREET (Entrance Watchnng Are.) PIi 5-3875 "CRESCENT HOME" P.
