The death angel visited the home
of Dr. and Mrs. E. H. Dorris Sun
day morning and took from them a
very bright and promising flower,
little George Shafter. Father,
mother, relatives and friends grieve
not for Shafter he is only sleeping
in the arms of Jesus, wailing for
you, where there will be no more
parting. Only look to God, he is
ready and willing at any 'time of
need to help his children. While
Sbafter's presence is missed at home
God is taking care of him for you.
Blessed be the thought of a treas
ure in heaven like little Shafter and
that we all some day will be there
never to part again.
Shafter was born August 26tb,
1898, died Sunday morning at 11:20
June 19, 1904.
He died before his infant soul
Had ever burnt with wrong desires.
Had ever spurned at hearen's control
Or ever quenched its sacred fires.
