In Memory

The following verse is sent by Mrs. E. S. Lundy of Fresno, California and is in loving memory of their little darling, Doris, who passed away seven years ago, November 25th.  In Prospect cemetery softly sleeping Where the flowers gently wave Lies the one we loved so dearly Sweetly sleeping in the grave. When the evening sun is sinking And I am sitting all alone In my heart there comes a longing, If only she could come home. Often now my heart does wonder To the graveyard far away Where we laid our darling daughter Beneath the cold, cold clay. Days have passed since you were with us, Sad and mournful was our parting But when the scenes of life are over We hope to meet you with the blest.
