God will come to my help

Grover Cleveland’s daughter died on January 6, 1904
These are entries from his diary after her death.

” I had a season of great trouble in keeping out of my mind the idea that Ruth was in the cold, cheerless grave instead of in the arms of her Saviour.” — 10 January 1904
” It seems to me I mourn our darling Ruth’s death more and more. So much of the time I can only think of her as dead, not joyfully living in heaven.” — 11 January 1904
God has come to my help and I am able to adjust my thought to dear Ruth’s death with as much comfort as selfish humanity will permit.” — 15 January 1904
