IN MEMORIAM n memory of our dear beloved wife, ' mother, sister.' aiid grandmother, . Mrs, Cora E. Hoffman, who deparl- d this life March 2nd, 1944. One month has passed, So sad, lonely and blue, Deaf one without you. You left us without a sigh, Not even a chance to say goodbye. Friends may think, The wound has healed, Little dp they realize, The hurt our hearts conceal. More arid more we miss you, With the passing of eacli day, Our hearts are oh; so empty, Since you have gone away. We think of you in silence, Few ever see us weep, — .. But many a tear we've shed, While others lay asleep. Never shall you be forgotten, Never shall your memories fade, Loving thoughts shall always linger, O'er that cold, cold mound of clay. Some glad day we hope to meet you, Iri that "Sweet Bye ami Bye," Then we'll all be rc-uiillcd, '. Arid then we'll understand whv. Sadly missed by The Children.
