In levinf memory of Furney How
ard, Junior, who died September 28,
There waa an angel band in heiuren
That was not quite complete
And God took our darling boy
To fill the vacant seat.
Oh, so often wil we wonder
Why God took our, darling boy;
And then we hear a sweet voice whis-
He only gave him for a while.
No one knows the sorrow
That was within our hearts
Whan we saw your smiling face
From this earth depart.
Days of darkness still come o'er us,
Days have never been the same,
God alone knew how you suffered.
So He called you and relieved your
Good-by, Junior, our precious boy,
But not for evermore;
For in heaven we Will meet you,
On that bright and happy shorn.
