are not so removed
from us, but they
love and care for
us still. The unseen
world seems so
much nearer and
more real, than ever
before - and thus -
alas - so empty!
No, not "empty"

your dear husband
and I my darling
children - his
children - whom he
has left in my care

infinite love and infinitely
tender compassion are suffi-
cient for such sore {trials ?}.

I rejoice that the
Comforter has come to you
dear Mrs Stanford - and pray
that you may always be able
to lean your bereaved heart
upon the great sympathizing heart
of God.

Your friend - your "sister in sorrow"
Ellen T. Windom
