To the Memory of Josie LONG FLANAGAN
In behalf of her family and friends
In His great wisdom, from this life God chose to call a loving
A daughter ever dutiful and fair;
A mother who gave great love and care;
A sister whose kind and tender ways
Brought sunshine in the bygone days,
Thy memory long in hearts will dwell
Of those who knew and loved thee well.
'Tis only human that we should grieve
But if Christ's teachings we believe
We feel that on the eternal shore
We shall meet with thee in joy once more.
