Cliffside, May 4.—Hello, friends. Next Sunday is Mother’s Day the world over. The special day when our thoughts turn to mother in loving gratitude for her devotion and unselfish life in giving to us all the joys that make happiest [happiness].It is a special day that we may tell her of our love and appreciation. And to those whose mothers have gone before: May there [their] loving memory lead them to a more useful life. What would we all not give to call our dear mothers back to earth for a single day, to ask her pardon on our knees for all those acts by which we grieved her gentle spirit?
Words of Abraham Lincoln: “All I am, all that I hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. Blessing on her memory. I remember my mother’s prayers. They have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.”
