|Ella G Armstrong|
Died July 27, 1898
Age 30 years
A dear Mother from us is gone.
A dear mother from us is gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.
Gone, and the world to go on as before;
Gone, with a smile, from our dear home door;
Dear faithful heart to come back never more--
Oh, sad nevermore!
Sleep, mother, sleep with your hand on your breast,
Poor weary hands--they needed their rest.
Well have loved you, but God loved you best--
'This thy God giveth sweet rest.
