perfect confidence and trustful resignation characterized her and 
she passed away sweetly, sustained and soothed by the blessed thought 
that she was going home to be forever with her Savior and her loved 
ones who have already entered these shining portals

“Up to that world of light
Take us, dear Saviour,
May we all there unite,
Happy forever.”
