In Memoriam

BRYANS -- In loving memory of my dear husband, Alexander Bryans, who died April 13th, 1917.
   Quick and sudden was the call.
      Not thinking death was near;
   It pleased the Lord to call him home,
      And in his sight appear.
Ever remembered by his Sorrowing wife, Sarah Bryans.

BRYANS -- In loving memory of Uncle Alex.; died April 13th, 1917. Never forgotten by his loving niece, May, at Manchester.

CHESNEY -- In loving memory of our dear father, John Chesney, who died 9th April, 1915, at Killcurry.
   Blessed hope that God has given,
      Though bereaved we need not mourn,
   For we'll surely meet that loved one
      On that resurrection morn.
   That glad meeting's surely coming,
      Oh! how soon we cannot tell;
   But we leave it all with Jesus,
      For He doeth all things well.
Inserted by his sorrowing daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. David Strain, 26, Dalry Road, Kilwinning, Ayrshire, Scotland.

CLARKE -- In sad and affectionate remembrance of my dear son, Private Harry Clarke, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, died of wounds on March 26, 1918.
   May the heavenly winds blow softly
      O'er that low and hallowed spot;
   Though the seas divide your grave from us.
      You'll never be forgot.
   His loving face and kindly smile,
      The fond true heart is still;
   And the lips that spoke so kind to me.
      Are closed in death's cold chill.
   Like ivy round the withered oak,
      When all things else decay.
   My love for you will still be green
      And will not fade away.
   The hardest part is yet to come,
      When the heroes do return.
   When I miss among the cheering crowd
      My dear beloved son.
Deeply regretted and ever remembered by his sorrowing mother, Agnes Clarke, 45, Springwell Street, Ballymena; also his sister and brothers.

CLARKE -- In loving memory of our dear brother, Private Harry Clarke, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, died of wounds on March 26 1918.
   His cheery smiling countenance.
      Is pleasant to recall.
   He had a kindly word for each.
      And died beloved by all.
Ever remembered by his sister and brother-in-law, Archie and Annie Kenny.
