Excerpt from Memorial of Mrs. Lucy Gilpatrick Marsh: A Funeral Address Delivered at the Eliot Church, Boston Highlands, Monday, June 22, 1868
When the Lord removed his servant Moses, there was but one mourner, and that mourner was all Israel. To-day a whole community is the mourner. A mother - may I not say, the mother in Israel has been taken from us. A woman, a whole woman, an aged woman, a thoroughly Christian woman, one worthy to have sat with Mary Mag dalene and the other Mary over against the sepulchre, to have returned with them, that she might assist in preparing sweet spices, and, when the Sabbath was past, to have come back again to the tomb, is herself to be laid away to-day. We glance at her career and character.
