The family, who are overcome with grief, send this expression of their sentiments:
"Dearest Mother, you have left us;
Here your loss we greatly feel,
But 'tis God that has bereft us--
He can all our sorrows heal.
But we hope again to meet you
When these days of life are fled,
And in Heaven we will greet you,
Where no parting tears are shed."
