If, as has been said, "Death loves a shining mark," it is the most surely
exemplified in the death recorded above. Possessed of a happy and loving
disposition, making friends wherever known, being well educated and having
the advantaged of the culture which knowledge give, she was well qualified to
act her part in life in such a manner to prove a blessing not only to her immediate
family, but to the community where she resided. He who noteth (sic) the sparrow's
fall, has ordered it otherwise, and she is called away from earth, her sun having
gone down while it was yet day, her life work done, her labors ended. Yet will
we be comforted in the hope that in the beautiful land beyond to which we are
all hastening, we shall meet again never more to part.
"To calm repose the kind death angel won her,
Touching the eyes that nevermore shall weep;
And lo the sweetest of all slumber fell upon her,
For so he giveth his beloved sleep." H. M. H.
