Peaceful be thy silent slumber,
Peaceful in the grave so low;
Thou no more shalt join our number,
Thou no more our sorrows know.
Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the day of life is fled;
Then, in Heaven, with joy to greet thee,
Where no farewell tear is shed.
Never more will we caress thee
With our heart's deep yearning love;
Blessed now enfold thee,
In thy heavenly home above.
His funeral will take place from his late residence, No. 3819 Sixth street, Port Mayo, SUNDAY, January 4th, at 2 o'clock P.M. Friends of the family are respectfully invited to attend.
