Excerpt from Safe in the Arms of Jesus; Lillian Marie Harnickell, March 31, 1881: Only Daughter of Max and Kate Harnickell, Owego, N. Y
During the whole of my Lilly's life, it has seemed to be the aim of every one to make her happy. At the last, how her friends clustered abou... t her, and she was so appreciative of all that was done. She never forgot to thank us, and so often said, Oh! How good you all are to me. Nothing that earthly hand could do, or loving hearts suggest, was left undone for Lilly. Poor, budding ¿ower, never allowed to bloom, as a cousin said of her.
Again was God's goodness to and love of my child shown. At the last moment, as her frail boat was landing on the other shore, one of God's ministering angels of the earth was at the helm to hand my precious one, from me, Safe in the arms of Jesus. Nestle close there, darling Lilly, until a few days are gone by, and mamma comes to clasp you again to her breast.
Although my Lilly was very, very ill, there was something unusually sacred during her whole illness. I feel in my heart, as do all that were by her, that every moment spent by her bedside, during those ten days, were holy moments.
