her. She died happy in her Saviour, and requested all her young friends to
meet her “in that home not made by hands.” The sympathy of all friends
is extended to the bereaved mother.
“Asleep in Jesus’ blessed sleep
From which none ever wake to weep;
calm and undisturbed repose,
by the last of foes.”
