Jennie Miller in Memoriam
In loving remembrance of our dear mother Mrs. Jennie Miller who left us one year ago January 3, 1938
Deep in our hearts lies a picture
Of a loved one gone to rest
In memory's frame we shall keep it
Because she was one of the best
As we loved her, so we miss her,
In our hearts she is always near,
Loved, remembered, longed for always--
Brings many a silent tear
The drops of grief are keeping
their shadows on our brow,
O, blame us not for weeping,
We gave no "Mother" now.
