Funeral services were held Monday, May 15. Interment was in the Farnam Cemetery.
I do not ask that God shall always make my pathway light
I only pray that He will hold my hand throughout the night.
I do not hope to have the thorns removed that pierce my feet;
I only ask to find His blessed arm my sure retreat.
If He afflicts me, then in my distress withholds His hand—
If all His wisdom I can not conceive or understand,
I do not seek to always know His way or wherefore here;
But in time He will take my Hand, and make His meaning clear.
