A trib ute ol love and devotion in memory of my wife, MARY CARROLL ANDERSON, who departed this life one year ago today, April 7. 1943. How many summers. Love, Have I been thine? How many days, thou dove, Hast thou been mine? Time, like the winged wind When 't bends the flowers. Hath left no mark behind, To count the hours: Some weight of thought, though loath On thee he leaves, Some lines of care ’round both Perhaps he weaves. Some fears—a soft regret For joys scarce known; Sweet looks we half forget— All else is flown! WILLIAM H. ANDERSON. A TRIBUTE FROM MRS. GATCH. To Our Beloved Mary Anderson: "Praise God from whom all blessings flow," is what we all sing so often and it always seemed to me that Mary Anderson was one of our greatest blessings right from God. And now God has taken her to Himself and we must praise Him just as before and not grieve too greatly in our broken hearts. “Mary Anders.” as our children so fondly called her, was our loving and beloved friend and faithful helper over a period of 23 years. I can pay her no greater tribute than to say that her spirit lives forever in our Intimate family circle. The mutual devotion between her and the three Gatch children, whom she helped raise from their cradles up. was something so beautiful and so profound that both Capt. Gatch and I feel that whatever worthwhile suc cess the children may attain will be partly due to Mary. God bless her! We never knew any one like her and we never shall know her equal. Her bright mind, fine ludgment and understanding heart combined with her great Christian soul to make her a most unusual per sonality. Would there were more like her to make this life a better one I Our deepest sympathy goes to her hus band, who has been so close to my father's family since early childhood—and to her nephew and niece and to all her dear ones For myself, my heart is painfully weighed down with the thought of losing her pres ence from this world, but my spirit rises in hope and faith when I realize God's goodness in reuniting us with our loved ones in the next, happier world. I know Mary will be there waiting for all of us Thanks be to God! (MRS.1 NANCY DASHIELL GATCH. A TRIBUTE FROM MISS GATCH. Dear William: I still haven’t gotten over the sudden shock of getting Mother's letter Sunday morning, telling me of Mary's death and of the very beautiful funeral you had for her. It was so completely unexpected— and somehow, Mary was such a wonderful person—so lovely, so kind, so unusually understanding—that I guess I thought of her as being immortal. It is especially hard to realize some one you love is gone when you are so far from them. Home without her to talk to and confide in will never be the same. She meant so very much to me—as she did to all who knew her—and I can remember things she told me and things she did for me when I was Just 3 or 4 years old. I know she was one of the loveliest characters I shall ever meet and I know how hard It must be for you without her. I have had such a wonderful feeling of her being with me in spirit dufing these past few days. She always said she didn't like the water and would never take a trip across the ocean— but now I feel that she has and when things seem almost too much to bear with the work we are doing and the suffering we see. I feel her near with her smile and infinite understanding, and it helps me through all the time. So I know she is immortal in that way—she has in fluenced all of us who loved her—-and I know I will never forget and will always try to grow to be like her if I can. It was a lovely thing for you to have her burled with the pin I gave her over her heart—it helps to make up for the sadness of being so far away from her. I hope it won’t be too long before I come back to Washington because I get quite homesick at times. But we are work ing hard and nobody wants to leave until the job is done. I hope you are well. Wil liam. It has been a long time since I have seen you. My best wishes have been with you through all your sorrow. It was such a blow to me, I know how very hard it was for you. But the many memories we have of Mary are things to keep forever. Sincerely, (MISS) NANCY W. OATCH. • ANDERSON, MARY C. In loving remem brance of our dear aunt, MARY C.
