Ina Midi Power Oeings.
Our hearts were filled with deepest
sorrow when, in the early hours ol
the morn of April Ith., this message
came to us, " Ina Meli is dying." We
could not realize that this was true.
Having lived hut twenty Jive years, so
beautiful and good, surely her life
work was not ended, and into our
hearts crept a lain' hope thai perhaps,
even yet. the hand of death would he
stayed, hul alas! in a few short hours
her spirit winged its (light to Heaven
above. Ina Meli Tower Owens was
the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
John D. Power,
lieing reared in an ideal Christian
home site was taught from childhood
to reverence I ho name of tlod, and
in her i urlj girlhood years accepted
Jesus as a personal Saviour, united
with Highland Home Baptist church,
ami since t Im I time has walked in
close relationship wall the Master.
Five years ago she was married id
Barle C, Owens. Being the only liv
ing child she had, previous to this
time, been shielded by a most devoted
father ami mother from all the hard
ships of life, her every wish was, al
most anticipated and gratified. So she '
entered into her married life without
a tinge of sadness to mar her happi
ness, hut Cod had planned that, hence
forth, the clouds were to take the
place of the sunshine. Scarcely had
the Orange blossoms faded from her
brow, when tin- angel of death enter,
cd this home and took from it her
dear father, in two years from this
time her moll,er went Home, a id since
then, a little babe has been taken from
her arms, and increased her treasures
Hi Heaven. Truly she must have been
precious in the sight of the Lord, for
whom lie loveth, He ohasteneth, and1
scourgeth everyone that He recoivoth.'
How hard it Is to comprehend that
they are all gone, passed away hi
Mich a brief space of time. But what
a consoling thought that they are in
vited above. As wc stood around her
dying bed that morning, and her im
mortal soul passed out into eternity,
we could, almost by the eye of faith,
peer into the great beyond and view
the meeting of this dear child with
father ami mother "Over There." We
had no doubt there was a family re
union in Heaven that day.
May their lives lie an inspiration
to those of us who are left behind to
bo more zealous in Cue work of the '
Lo.d. ami when life is o'er, be permitt
ed, witli them lo take part in that
"first resurrection, over whom, the
Becotld death hath no power."
