And one clear call for me.
And may there be no moaning of the bar
When I put out to sea.

In loving memory of William H. Henthorn who passed away June 20, 1952.
Peaceful be they rest, dear Father
It is sweet to breathe thy name
In life we loved you dearly
In death we do the same.
In our hearts your memory lingers
Always tender, fond and true,
There is no a day dear Father
That we do not think of you.
Rest on, dear Father, thy labor is o'er
Thy willing hands will toil no more
For God at last knew what was best
So He took you home with Him to rest.
Sadly missed by wife and daughter, Mrs. Velma Henthorn and daughter, Ella.
