Haun, Louisa Stone
Delphos Republican, May 12, 1916
A loving mother true and kind
No friend like her on earth we'll find.
God called her home, It was his will
But in our hearts she lingers still.
For all of us she did her best,
May God grant her eternal rest.

Oh mother thy gentle voice is hushed
Thy warm, true heart is still,
And on thy pale and peaceful face
Is resting death's cold chill,
Thy hands are clasped upon thy breast,
We have kissed thy maple brow,
And in our aching hearts we know
We have no mother now.
