    My dear sister, Thy faults were slight and few
                                As human faults can be;
                                And they virtues were as many too
                                As gems beneath the sea.
                                And thy thoughts did Heavenward roam
                                Until like links of gold
                                They drew thee up to thy blue home
                                Within the Savior's fold.
                                "Sweet peace be unto you."
