FUNERAL PROGRAMME OF THE LATE
M RS. MABLE E. WARE BONNER

The Lord is my shepherd: I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the pathes of righteousness for His name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou annointest my head with oil; My cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days

of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord

forever.

23rd Psalm
