Excerpt from The Church of England Pulpit, and Ecclesiastical Review, Vol. 35: January to June, 1893
Ach time that a familiar face disappears from among us, each time we are told of a friend or a neighbour that his voice can be heard among us no more, we must, if we ourselves are going down hill in the journey of life, feel that our turn for disappearance must soon come. A few more struggles here, a few more partings o'er, and then we ourselves shall become a memory to those whom we have loved, or who have loved us. In almost all cases the thought of those who have gone before us becomes more tender than the feeling which we had for them while they were here. We dwell on all the good that we have seen in them, while their faults, their mistakes, their wrong doings become constantly more faint, if they are not forgotten altogether.
