than that of my dear Mother whom I loved.
She now is sharing Heav’n with Christ above.
No longer aged or weak, she is made whole.
She made my childhood sparkle with delight
though many times she bowed beneath the load
of Father’s illness and, if all be told,
the coldness of a church that looked contrite.
In spite of disappointments, grief, and pain,
she showed the love of Christ in every way,
and though a child I was, I felt the day
grow bright when Mother’s laughter warmed the rain.
True faith is shown when one goes bravely on
as Mother did when Father was called home.
