Joey Bowers, aged 13, son of Mr.
and Mrs. H. E. Bowers of Eckles,
died at St. Anthony's hospital, last
Saturday morning, following an op
eration for appendicitis. Joey was
one of Eckles' most promising boys
and life with all its possibilities ap
pealed strongly to him, but when he
realized that he could not live, his
faith in the pitying Savior was beau
tiful to witness. His death has cast
a gloom throughout the entire com
munity, for his kind, lovable dispo
sition won the hearts of all who knew
him. To his parents the loss comes
doubly hard, as eight years ago they
lost their little daughter Ellen, in
a similar manner. The funeral serv-
