In loving memory of our dear mother, Mrs. Tonetta Kohler Downs, who passed away one year ago today, June 1, 1945 :
One year has passed since that sad day, The one we loved was called away. The shock we felt was so severe, To part with one we loved so dear. She lives with us in memory still, Not just today, but always will. God saw the road was growing rough, The hills were hard to climb. He gently closed her loving eyes, And whispered peace be thine. Her weary days of pain are through, Her restless nights are passed. Her ever-patient worn out frame Has found sweet rest at last.
By Her Daughters, Beulah And Ioma.
