Mrs. O. T. Richardson Died


Mrs. O T Richardson Died

The Same Pall Bearers That Carried Her
Husband to His Last Resting Place
Last December.

Weep not, that her toils are over,
Weep not that her race is run.
God grant, we may rest as calmly
When our work, like hers, is done.
Till then, we yield with gladness,
Our mother, to Him, to keep,
And rejoice in the sweet assurance
He giveth His loved one sleep.
