June 27th 
This is the anniversary of my death Mother’s departure from earth. Her birth-day into glory! Oh! she was meek for the blessed change – she was ready for the peace of the Bride-groom. How well do I remember her placid smile & sweet self-forgetfulness – oh that I may be prepared for a happy reunion with her and my beloved Father in the “merry mansions” above.
