      'The one for whom you cared with such abiding love
      Has found the wondrous shining path up to the home above;
      The home where joy forever dwells, where loved ones only wait
      For us to share their happiness beyond the heavenly gate.
      Life is never all gladness nor all sorrow;
      After the darkest night the sun will shine again,
      No one hears the door that opens when they pass beyond all call,
      Soft as loosened leaves of roses, one by one, our loved ones fall.'
      CARD OF THANKS
      We wish to thank friends, neighbors and Rev. L.A. Lashbrook for theirconsoling words and kindness during the sickness and death of ourbeloved mother. The Lusk brothers and sisters."
