In Memoriam

In loving memory of Maud, wife of Ernest Perry, who passed peacefully to rest after a lengthy and trying illness, sustained by Christain fortitude, on April 8th, 1920:

Daughter, sister, wife and mother,

God has called thee home at last,

Safe beyond this world’s temptations,

Through this vale of tears you’ve passed.

 

Oh, its hard to live without thee,

Knowing that thou’lt come no more,

Soon the blessed, grand re-union

On that bright, celestial shore.

 

Blessed, glorious, grand re-union,

No more partings, no more sighs,

Oh, that heavenly Easter morning

When God wipes all tear-dimmed eyes.

 

Rest thou, until then, oh loved one,

We, a little longer stay,

Trusting in our Heavenly Father,

He will lead us all the way.
