Old friends are leaving us every day;
It seems so many are going away.
The homes look lonely with loved ones
It doesn't seem right; it seems all
Oh, how we'll miss their kindly faces.
They tell us others will take their
Of course we welcome the friends that
But, oh, how we'll miss the old ones too.
These partings are coming too fast to
My eyes fill with tears and I hardly
When I think of the Calkins'g going
They know it is best we can't bid
But dear friends, we'll miss your many
They'll live on when you're gone so the
Holy Book reads.
So God bless you and keep you from
harm and all care;
May happiness be yours for all time,
is the prayer
Of your many Boardman friends.
