Note: I do have several pictures of the above Jordan family members (some are not
marked). Contact me for a copy.
In conclusion I will say to the children, weep not as those who have no hope, but live up
to Mother's teachings and example and we feel all will be well. May you look to him who
doeth all things well, and say, "Dearest mother thou hast left us, But 'tis God who hath
berht (berth) us, He can all our sorrows heal.
