We shall miss our darling daughter,
She has bid us all adieu,
She has gone to dwell in heaven,
And her form is lost to view;

Dearest Elva now is resting,
In that happy land above,

In that land where all is love.
Card Of Thanks We wish to express our heartfelt thanks to
the many friends and neighbors who expressed their sympathy and who in

this, our sad bereavement. N. S. Kauffman and Family.
