WEBMISTRESS' NOTE: For reasons which are unclear to me, I was unable to access Anne's obituary in a timely fashion. It was finally graciously supplied to me by the following three individuals - and by then the system mysteriously granted me direct access to it as well.
Thank you, Edna, June, and Richard.

Thinking of Eloisa today (mine and Abby's nickname for her mom) That high pitched laugh. The way she talked to her cats like they were people and still wondering why she never let us cook in the kitchen! Miss you.~ Joan

Come, Ye Disconsolate
Words by Thomas
Moore; alt. by Thomas Hastings
Music by Samuel Webbe
Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.
Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."
Here see the bread of life; waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
