Mrs. Moffat's kindly christian life, in all its simplicity of goodness, always striving to her utmost to alleviate the sufferings of others, her ready help, always offered to the needy and afflicted, and her kindly disposition will ever be a guiding star to all who knew her, and to know her was to be her friend, and her friends are countless, who with the immediate relatives will mourn the loss of Grandma Moffat, as her guiding hand was always a comfort.
