Whose love can equal the love of a
Whose the devotion so loyal and true?
Who suffers so much with such joy
for another,
Who works with such pleasure as
Mother for you?
You hail with delight the friendship
of others,
You revel in love of the sweetheart
you've won;
Yet where do you find a friendship
like mothers'
Unbroken till death calls, and life's
work is done.

We desire to express our sincere thanks to the neighbors and friends for the many expressions of kindness shown us during the sickness and after death of our mother. Also to those who sent floral tributes and to those who contributed toward memorial wreaths, those who sang, and Rev. Langehough for this comforting words, we are deeply grateful.
