Poem attached to Obit:
A precious one from us is gone
Her smiling face we see no more
But at the bright and glorious dawn
We'll meet on heaven's shore,
Beyond the reach of wistful eyes
Beyond this vale of bitter tears
Where gladness reigns and love
She'll dwell thro' fair eternal years
How sad the thought, she is gone,
Although we know she 's free
Oh how it fills our hearts with pain
To part with one to us so dear.
But when we reach that happy
Sad parting words we'll never hear
Oh how we miss her smiling face
And long to hear the voice so still
Oh! there is her chair, a vacant
That never can be filled
