Hermitage Letters

Sarah Hall

It was 143 years ago today that Sarah Hall died . . . we didn’t really know Sarah Hall of course, but her grave is on the Ascension Hermitage & Sanctuary property, and her headstone says this:
SARAH wife of Tubman L. Hall, daughter of Lazarus & Sarah Maddux. Died April 28, 1874. Age 68 years. From a child she was a consistent member of the M.E. Church, her end was peaceful and triumphant. Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his Saints. Ps. 116:15. [That’s verse 15 in the KJV Bible – in the more modern English version it’s verse 13!]
Mom said Sarah Hall wasn’t very old, but peaceful and triumphant sounds like a good way to die . . . I just hope she had a kitty or doggy waiting for her at the Rainbow Bridge. This morning Mom trimmed the grass around the gravestones and said a prayer for Sarah Hall – we hope she watches us from heaven. Maybe one day we will meet there!

Mom has other errands today, so we have to turn the computer off. I’ll write again soon.
Love,
Gus
