In sad but loving memory of my dear, mother Harriott Mann, who fell asleep in Jesus on 18th May, 1902, at New Plymouth. How sudden was your call, dear mother, Not a word to me could you say; Hard seems my lot which has befell, For I was not there to say farewell. To part with dear mother was a trial severe. Although she is better up yonder than here; Our loss is her gain, she's an angel above, She drinks perfect bliss at the fountain of love. Oh, may my dear mother be a link in the chain. That will bind us to heaven till we meet her again. Lonely the house and sad the hours, Since my dear mother has gone, But oh, a brighter home than ours, In Heaven is now her home. All you who have a mother, Love her while you may, She cannot live-for ever, Too soon she'll pass away. Dearly loved and deeply mourned.
Inserted by her loving daughter, Mrs J. Clark, Parnell.
