NAME: Smith, Lydia Eaton (b. 9 Apr 1887 - 24 Feb 1889 of scarlet fever)

In memory of Flora May Smith Who died March 3rd 1889.

Another grave is newly made;
 On this sad, mournful day;
And beneath the Tomb we lay her form,
 The remains of Flora May.

How lonely since her life is done,
 Seems more than we can bear;
But she is far from earthly trials,
 Its burdens and its care.

Oh God Thou hast bereft us,
 Of one who was so dear;
But we know Thou will not forsake us,
 But drop some words of cheer.

Released from pain from sorrow free,
 Our Flora sleeps her long last sleep;
We call it Death but still she is free
 From all things sad that makes us weep.

-Written by her Sister Katie
[Mary Catherine Smith]
