“He had a nature you could not help loving,

And a heart that was purer than gold,

And to those who knew him and loved him,

His memory will never grow cold,

His helping hand was always first,

To render any aid he could,

His voice was always raised in praise,

For each and every one,

His words were wise and good.

“Dear One, since you’ve gone away,

The ones you loved so true,

Will carry on the way,

We know you’d want them to,

Until we meet again,

Your Loving Wife, Ruth.”
