Weep not dear children while mother is gone, the chair is vacant in the home, strive to meet her in world on high.Why do we weep departed loved ones, or shake at deaths alarm, it is but the voice that Jesus sends to call them to His arms.We know dear children you are lonely, mother is gone but Jesus took her home to live with Him where sorrow or pain never is known, so dwell in peace for ever.Blest dear children we extend our heartfelt sympathy to you all in your sad hour.
May God's richest Blessings be with you all.
