GREER -- In loving remembrance of Mary Anne Greer, who passed away on the 20th of April, 1911, and was interred in Ballyclog Graveyard.
   Not dead to us, we loved her dear;
      Not lost, but gone before;
   She lives with us in memory still,
      And will for evermore.
   Gone from amongst us, O, how we miss her!
      Loving her dearly, her memory we'll keep;
   Never till life end shall we forget her;
      Dear to our hearts is the grave where she sleeps.
Inserted by her sorrowing mother and her Sister Sarah.

HENRY -- In loving remembrance of Archibald Henry, who departed this life on the 30th April, 1912, and was interred in Clare Churchyard.
   In a distant far off graveyard
      Where the trees their branches wave,
   Lies a loving husband and father sleeping
      In his cold and silent grave.
   He is gone, but not forgotten,
      And as it dawns another year.
   In our lonely hours of thinking,
      Thoughts of him are always near.
   Two years have passed, and still we miss him;
      Folks may think the wound is healed,
   But little do they know the sorrow
      That lie within our hearts concealed.
Inserted by his wife and daughters.


Mrs. Glover and family desire to thank the many kind friends who sympathised with them daring their recent sad bereavement.
