"Blessed are the Dead Which Die in the Lord." A large audience of
relatives and friends was in attendance.
We miss thee from our home, dearest Cora,
We miss thee from thy place;
A shadow o'er our life is cast,
We miss the sunshine of thy face.
We miss thy kind and willing hands,
Thy fond and earnest care;
Our home is dark without thee
We miss thee everywhere.
Dearest loved one, we must lay thee,
In the peaceful grave's embrace;
But thy memory will be cherished
'Till we see thy heavenly face.
