'Tis hard to part with mother dear.
No more to see no more to hear,
A nobler mother could not be
Found this side eternity.
But yet we're glad, if God thought best,
To end her troubles and give her rest.
In heaven, to sing with angels fair.
May our names, too. Be written there?
That we again may mother meet,
And walk with her thru golden streets.
Written by one of family.
