Mother
Ruth Elrod Smith
1897 - 1948.

You have gone to the lovely mansion which has been prepared for thee, sweetheart. Over the purple hills, beyond the softly glowing rim of life's spent day, thy fair soul wings its flight out of the morning, across the white archway of life's noon-tide. Down to the fading sun-set! Out of the din and clamor, out of the pettiness and strife, out of the anguish and pain, into the dreamless silence whose shadows mark the path way to the stars!

Out of the agony of life's Gethesmene, Over the quaking summit of Calvary, Into the realm of glory where God's banners never furl - where victory is sure! So thy brave soul - champion always of those who were weak and in need - moves down the west where earth's last glimmer fades and dies. And into God's spreading dawn whose light is eternal, whose breath is cool and sweet.
John Lee Smith
