IN MEMORIAM.
Watters (nee Milliken), Nannie M., who one year ago today entered into eternal rest at her home, 1204 Washington street, Tyrone, Pa., a sister, mother and friend.
I miss you and mourn you in silence unseen,
And dwell on the memory of days that have been.
Though gone and forgotten by some you may be,
The years that you lived, sister, are sacred to me.
Sleep on sister and take thy rest,
Lay down thy head upon thy Savior's breast.
I loved thee well, but Jesus loved thee best.
- BROTHER ROY, Cleveland, Ohio.
