A message

I think when I look at the sky above
That I see two eyes of the one I love
Looking down on me here
And saying so low
Trust in God never fear
As on duty you go.

For the duty you'll do
is as hard as I've done
And my work is all over
While yours is begun
But I know you will fight
And that right will proclaim
And may God guide you aright
In his only Son's name.

Dear Aunt Maggie

Just a message to tell you that I am praying for you and I know you will be proud as we are for the one who is so grand for he is not dead but sleeping. Let us thank God that he did his bit for us and pray earnestly that we may fit ourselves to be what he has been in his unselfish love for others.

I know you will understand what I mean Aunt Maggie and I hope my sincerest sympathy and love may comfort you a little.

Your loving niece

P.S. This is a little poem (Her Boy) I thought you might cherish as it was written the same month as he came into his heavenly home in doing for us what we could not do. Yours G.C.
