IN MEMORY OF GRANDMOTHER SINCO
(Tribute written by a friend)
Dear mother, grandmother and friend so dear
To all of us who knew you here,
We'll miss your voice and smile of love
Tho' our sad loss is your gain above.
You lived the allotted span of time -
Three score and twenty years
Of useful, christian womanhood,
Tho shared with toil and tears.
Your prison walls are broken,
Your soul at last is free
To go and dwell with Jesus
Where you have longed to be.
We will not grieve as without hope,
Nor wish you back where life our souls annoy;
For in that lovely home of God
Is eternal day, and life, and joy.
NOTE: John C. and Caroline W. (KLING) SINCO were interred at Maple Row Cemetery, Kellerton, Ringgold
