In loving memory, of my . father;
A.. Clark Ouzts,. who departed this
life December 8, 1917.
Oh, how hard we tried to save
him, prayers and tears were all in
vain; happy angels came and took
him from this world of toil and pain.
You are not forgotten, Eather, nor
will you ever'be as long as life and
memory last. We will always think
most of the four years just past. Our
hearts are sore as time flies on, we
miss him more. His loving voice, his
welcome face, no one can fill his va
cant place. Forget him? No we never
will. We loved him then, we love him
His memory is as fresh today as
in the hour he passed' away.
