Dear old Daddy, how we'll miss you
For we love you Oh! so much,
But we feel God's Spirit and your teaching will remain with us.
So we bow our heads in silence, and humbly breathe a prayer,
Not our will but thine dear Lord,
That we may meet you over there.

We desire to express to our kind neighbors and thoughtful friends our heartfelt thanks for their many expressions of sympathy and beautiful floral offerings.
Mrs. Hattie Elly
