Hattie was deaf all her life.

HATTIE MAY LOVELL
Dear sister, while watching at night by your bed
Many the thoughts which have passed through my head.
I have wondered and questioned why your life should be
So clouded and hampered, I really can't see.
But all through your life, in spite of your load,
You have found spots of sunshine all down the road.
You gave to your flowers such love and such care,
As only the lovers of beauty may share.

Whose fingers were quicker with needle or hook
To pick out a pattern of lace from a book?
Two years did Aunt Mary with patience divine,
Teach you to write and to read, line by line.
Your writing was plain, your spelling was right,
What you read you remembered. It gave you delight.
Many have marveled at your memory so clear,
No date you forgot, whether day, month, or year.

You knew more about Presidents of our blest land,
And the names of their cabinets, and who by them did stand.
The recreation you doted upon,
Was to visit your friends whom you relied on.
Two loves you had to whom you were true,
All of our babies belonged partly to you.
Next to their mothers, and sometimes before,
They'd reach over to you when you came through the door.

Through all of your life there has been no other,
As dear to you as our darling Mother.
Both she and Father kept you near
Happier for your presence, my dear.
So why should I feel that your life has been vain?
That you've lived your life's measure to me is made plain.
Your spirit was sent from our Father above,
And now you've gone back to His presence and love.
