BUTLER, MRS. LIZZIE A. - Thursday, April 10th, at 6:30 P. M., Mrs. Lizzie A. Butler, of consumption, aged 32 years and 7 months.


We laid our precious dead away,

   No longer her fair form we see,

And part of our life died the day

   Her mortal being ceased to be.


The loving ways that made her dear,

   Her gentleness untouched by art,

In sweet impressions linger near,

   For of ourselves they are a part.


Her sweet companionship we miss,

   As we recall the words she said,

But in our souls her presence is,

   We cannot call her wholly dead.     A.
