A Parting in Spring
May 6, 1866
53 Yrs, 11 Mo. & 23 D's
Farewell companion of my
thou'st left me lonely in this
world of pain.
O may we meet in heavenly bliss
I dedicate the first flower of spring I see
to Louisa Irey and her husband aggrieved.
(St. Peter's United Church of Christ, West Pikeland Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania)
NOTE: In honor of approaching spring and the stirrings of love it brings, my next serial fiction piece will be a romance. (Actually, make that paranormal romance. I know, I'm hopeless.)
