Nora Copcland Laugston.
Death is always sad, but when the
Reaper comes suddenly and unexpect
edly as the lightning Hash, and our
loved ones with but a sigh, pass from
our hearts and homes, forever, then
It Is peculiarly sad and human hearts
cry out In their sudden bereavement.
Thus it was in the death of the loved
Wife of .1. Lee Langs ton, Nora C.
Langston, when on April 2, her
pure and gentle spirit went home.
Nora Langston was born Into a good
ly heritage, the daughter of Cod fear
ing and God' loving parents, from a
race of people, noted always for their
sobriety and truthfulness, and in her
lifo she exemplified all the virtues
that go towards making the strength
of nations, a Christian wife and moth
In every phase of life she was found
faithful. As a daughter she was obe
dient and affectionate. I know how
dear she was to the hearts of her fath
er, sincere and hclj>ful to her friends
and to her children she was all that
a mother should be and today they In
their grief can call her blessed!
In her Church, to which she was de
voted, she was ever faithful and her
presence will be missed in the society
of which she was a helpful member.
On the 20th of October. ISS7, she
was married to J, Lee Langston and
truly "the heart of her husband did
I trust In her." Mutual love and mutual
forbearance made their home an ideal
ly happy one and the husband feels
today utterly shipwrecked, the light
of his heart and home has gone out.
May ho ho enabled to pray, as did the
Master in His Gothsnmnnao, "Not my
will, O Lord but thine be done"!
Though her death was not expected
yet hoi' life, the record she left bears
testimony to the fact that when she
was called, site waa ready to go.
"Though oftentinieo L'is lending
Are where deep shadows lie.
And to our tearful pleading
There seemeth no reply."
So it is in the death of she who was
so loved. To husband, children, broth
ers and sisters, though we cannot now
see why it was she was called "while
it was yet day," yet we realize that
"Cod doeth all things well" and In
Ills own time we'll see and understand.
May the. memory of her consecrated
life be an inspiration to nil who knew
and loved her and Cod grant that the
husband and children, as they weep
today in the shadow of a broken horn,
by faith may
Look up! dear hearts, look up!
Though sadly torn anl riven
Look up! nnd see that just beyond
Is Mother, Home nnd Heaven!
