In Memoriam.
God knows all thingys. We
do not see'- why He took our
father from us, but LHe needed
him worse than wve did. While
it does not seem that way t~o hs,
still God knows best. It is hard
for us to give him up, but we:
feel sure that he is in Heaven
for he told us all to meet him up
there. HeI is living in peace
with God, while we are left
here to mourn his death, He
said on his death bed that he
would soon be with his two
daughters, Ella and Kate, who
left us long ago to live with God
above.
Father left a wife and nine
children, three sisters and two
brothers to mourn his death.
May God be with us all and
carry us safely through this
sinful world and at last when
we come to die may we receive
a crown in Heaven and live for
ever with our father and sisters.
May God's richest blessings
rest upon our neighbors. They
wvere so good and kind dur'ing
his sickness. We feel that they
did everything that human
hands could do. But God saw
fit to take him from this sinful
world to where ther'e is no more
tears. no more deaths, no more
sorrow. H is D)aughter,
Etta Cater.
