"Call not back the dear departed,
Anchored safe where storms are o'er.
border land we left her,
Soon to meet and part no more.
WHen we leave this world of care,
We shall find our missing loved one
In our Father's mansion fair.
One by one earth's ties are
Card of Thanks.
As we see our love decay.
And the hopes so fondly cherished
Brighten but to pass away.
One by one our hopes grow brighter
As we near the shining shore,
For we know across the river
Wait the loved ones gone before."
We take this means of expressing to our friends and neighbors our
sincere and heart-felt thanks for the floral offerings and for the kindness shown in help and
sympathy during the illness and death of our dear wife and mother.
EARL WEST AND DAUGHTER
JOHN D. MARSHALL, her father.
