Life from Him doth light receive; My dear Jesus I'll not leave. Some time before she asked for a sermon funeral on the 23 Psalm or from the 91st.

Three of these are now living in Oregon: Adolph, Paul and Hans; two have their homes near Mason City Iowa; Otto and Erich; four reside near Monona; Mrs. Anna Kuester, Rudolph, Frederich and Christ.
