In Loving Remembrance of
Mary M. Barnum,
Born May 28, 1837.
Died Jan. 22, 1910.

Gone but not forgotten

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.
'Til then we yield with gladness,
Our mother to Him to keep,
And rejoice in the sweet assurance,
"He giveth His loved one sleep."

Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in thy grave so low;
Thou no more will join our number,
Thou no more our sorrows know.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled,
And in Heaven with joy to greet thee,
Where no farewell tears are shed.

In Loving Remembrance

There is no Death! what seems so is transition;
This life of Mortal breath
Is but a suburb of the life elysian,
Whose portal we call Death.

In Loving Remembrance of
Pernilia Foster,
Died May 22, 1889. Aged 73 years.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.

God in His wisdom has recalled,
The boon His love had given;
And though the body moulders here,
The soul is safe in Heaven.

In Loving Remembrance of
Mrs. Palmer Joslin,
Died June 28, 1894.
Aged 77 Years.

One less at home!
The charmed circle broken--a dear face,
Missed day by day from its usual place,
But cleansed, saved, perfected by grace,
One more in heaven!

One less on earth!
Its pain, its sorrow and its toil to share,
One less the pilgrim's daily cross to bear,
One more the crown of the blest to wear
At home in heaven!

"One less at home!
The charmed circle broken--a dear face
Missed day by day from its usual place,
But cleansed, saved, perfected by grace,
One more in heaven!"

"One less on earth!
Its pain, its sorrow and its toil to share,
One less the pilgrim's daily cross to bear,
One more the crown of the blessed to wear,
At home in heaven!

Asleep in Jesus! Blessed sleep,
from which none ever wakes to weep.

In Loving Remembrance of
Dana Brown,

Farewell, dear father, sweet thy rest
Weary with years and worn with pain,
Farewell, 'til in some happy place
We shall behold thy face again.

T'is ours to miss thee, all our years,
And tender memories of thee keep,
Shine in the Lord to rest, for so,
He giveth His beloved sleep.
