In loving memory of our loved one
THOMASINA WILLIAMS HEN
Who died November 13th, 1910.
“In the midst of life we are in
death,” said the prophet of old; and to
our dear one this prophecy was well
applied. When her life seemed just in
its infancy, and ambition was beckon
ing her onward, death intervened and
bore on its mysterious pinions, the
soul of our loved and devoted “daugh
ter.” On a calm moonlight night,
hand in hand with early dawn, the
heavenly day came to this child of God,
and cut short an existence which was
our pride and comfort.
Tho’ three years have passed her
image is reflected all around us, and
in our meditations we miss her pres
ence, counsel and advice.
We bow in humble submission to
the will of “Him who doeth all things
well,” and find consolation in knowing
that death is only a dream,” and after
the glad awakening, we shall be with
her for aye.
Her devoted family.
In memory of our dear son and
Who departed this life November 12th,
Gone but not forgotten.
Sleep on, beloved, sleep,
And take thy rest,
Lav down thy head upon
The Savior’s breast.
We love thee well, but Jesus
Loves thee best,
Good night! good night! good night.
Mother, Mrs. Lula Dooley,
Sister and brother.
In sad and loving remembrance of my
LILLIE B. WOODSON,
Who passed to her everlasting rest on
the morning of Nov. 11th, 1912.
All is dark within our home,
And lonely are our hearts today,
For the one we loved so dearly
Has forever passed away.
She suffered and murmured not
Though far away she is not forgotten,
The Lord doeth all things for the best,
And taketh her home to rest
Safe uoon the heavenly shore,
Done with all pr-ises forever mere.
When the shadows of life has ended,
When the morning come and busy
world has hushed.
And the fever of life was over
And her work on earth was done,
Oa the calm and quiet rest,
On btrjloving Savior’s breast,
Perfect peace supremely blest,
Safe forever more.
Storms shall never reach her there,
In that heavenly mansion fair
From the wells of our hearts arise
tears of regrets,
Though she sleeps beneath the sod.
I can never forget
But when we cross that deep and dark,
And reach that bright and happy land.
Our loving one will greet us,
And welcome us over there.
