In the difficult task of being a mother to her own and her husband's children she won the commendation of her husband and friends. In her bible was found this message seemingly intended for her loved ones. It was entitled, "A Message of Sympathy to Comfort You."
"God in Love has promised,
Grace for every trial,
Strength for every sorrow,
Help for every mile,
And may He in sympathy
And unfailing love impart
Hope for each tomorrow
And new courage to your heart."
