Some one has left we loved so dear,
And now no more his voice he hear,
We still can see his rocking chair;
It seems so still and lonely and bare;
Since he no more is sitting there,
Since he had left, we are alone.
We know, to Jesus he has gone.
We mourn - but hope that when we die,
We too shall meet with him on high."
By a grandson.

sustain the family in their bereavement, and keep them till they
may meet her in a better world where parting is no more.
