On August 29, 1908, at the early
age of 27 years, Arab Wilsonheard
and answered the call of God to
come up higher. He had been a
great sufferer, but as he had given
his heart to God early in life, calm
and sweet was his departure.
To his dear wife Stella Bedford,
of Omaha, Neb., to whom he was
married April 26, 1906 loving,
faithful, true and tender, we extend
a hand of sweet sympathy. Jesus
knows your anguish. You have
gone down into the valley of the
shadow and come up out of the vale
of sorrow, companionless. Yet, our
Lord will give you that1 strength
which your chastened heart so much
needs. Suffer no pangs, of con
science you did the best'.you could
for him you did nobly.
He was laid temporarily to'rest at
Fairmount Cemetery, near Denver,
Colo., to which healing, springs he
had gone, seeking health.
He longed so earnestly to visit
again his foster parents in Kentucky,
J. H. Pollock and wife, who had
raised him as their own child. Al
though denied that pleasure on
earth, yet thank God, some sweet,
bright day, they, with little Pearl,
who has gone on before, and Arah,
too, will walk the golden paved
streets of God's eternal city, where
no death and sorrow and disappoint
ment will ever come.
While they shall no more receive
those sweet letters from Arah, it is
sweet to that know Christian hope
lifts us up above earth's sorrows.
As soon as the sad news "Arah
is dead" went abroad, loving
friends came to J. H. Pollock and
wife and offered their sweet condol
ence, which they so much appre
ciated. But, oh, sufferinng hearts,
let me, as your loving friend, point
you to God, who only can give you
that sweet spirit of resignation
which you so much need. We all
must have our Getbsemanies of an
guish and we, like our Savior, must -'
say, "Thy will, not mine, oh God,
be done." ' ' ' "
I commend you now, bereaved
hearts, to God whose everlasting . '
arms are beneath you to lift' youup,-.
and who has so tenderly and con
soling promised, "I will never leave
thee, nor forsake thee."
