He was [a] devoted, loving husband and

even to the last. All the loving care and medical skill was given him before God chose to call him home.
Home is not home for Father's not there.
Angels have taken him — out of our care.
Dark is his room and empty his chair.
He has gone to that home so peaceful and fair.
Sleep Father, sleep thy toils are o'er.
Sweet be thy rest as oft needed before
Well we have loved you but God loved you more.
He called you away to that bright happy shore.
