Gone is a mother loved by all; her soul is now at rest. She'll sleep in peace, her work is done. A mother's work - the best. She'll know the joy of perfect rest in heaven up above, where she may dwell contentedly protected by God's love. Our hearts may grieve that she must lie beneath the sacred sod, and yet we know she lives in peace, within the house of God.
