"ALL day and ALL night ANGELS are watching over the Elliott Family"
"When my feeble life is over, time for me will be no more, Guide me gently safely over, To Thy Kingdoms shore, Just a closer walk with thee, grant it Jesus, is my plea. Daily walking close to thee, let it be, dear Lord, let it be..."
