[p. 24r]

Thou art gone, the two, the whole,
And we mourn you in vain,
For those eyes that beamed with
lovelight
Ne'er shall rest on us again

___

Like falling xx leaves the years
roll by
But memories of you will never die

___

In a garden of rest, no worry, no pain,
God keep you, Mick, until we
meet again

___

A tireless worker, good and true,
One in a million, mother, were you.
