A quote from Tennyson used in her Grandfathers 1922 obituary seems appropriate here. “Why Should We Weep With Those Who Die? They fall – their dust returns to dust; Their Souls shall live eternally, within the mansions of the just they toil to live, they sink to rise, they leave this wretched mortal shore, but bright suns and blue skies, shall smile on them for ever more.”
