Sunday, June 12, 1864
This morning FR passed from this life. The following record is in the words of Caroline Dent, who sat with her during the last hours.
"About half-past six, an expression of majesty and peace settled on her face, that no words can describe. It seemed something superhuman. I could not but feel, that however youthful her resurrection body might be, that majestic look would identify it. It was her own noble face, but transformed into something nobler than I had ever conceived as belonging to earth. It lasted about ten minutes, and then, with the faintest of breaths, she passed away to enter on the eternal keeping of Sabbath, in the presence of her Lord. As the light of Sunday morning, breaking over the mountains, streamed in at the window, we felt how in harmony with her faith in our resurrection, because of His, was it, that her spirit should rise from mortality on that day."
