In Memoriam

HAMILTON -- In fond and loving memory of Margaret, beloved wife of Samuel Hamilton, who died at Mountstewart, on 2nd January, 1913, and was interred in the family burying ground. Grey Abbey.
When time, who steals our years away,
   Shall steal our treasures too;
The memory of the past will stay,
   And half our joys renew.
We loved her; yes, we loved her,
   But Jesus loved her more;
And he has sweetly called her,
   To yonder shining shore.
A tender smile was given.
   A voice said, sweetly, "Come,"
And with farewell unspoken,
   Dear mother entered Home.
Inserted bv her loving HUSBAND and FAMILY. The Lodge, Mountstewart.
