Mother

"In the love of a brave and faithful man there is always a strain of maternal tenderness; he gives out again those beams of protecting fondness which were shed on him as he lay on his mother's knee."

--George Eliot 

 

[In your charity, dear friends, please pray for the soul of Phyllis, beloved wife, mother, and grandmother. She passed into Eternity early this morning, leaving behind, among others, a brave and faithful son who I am honored to call my friend. Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord. May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, rest in peace.]
