Cousin Jo Coffey and family b
In the death of young Jo JCoff y I lai
desire to say all Columbia is mourning se
Jo as his relations and friends called Jo
him had more good qualities and more at
good friends than any young man of cr
my acquaintance He had the most J
brilliant mind and was the finest con fri
versationalist of his age I ever t El
He was always friendly and never with R
out a word of goodwill of cheer for Ai
those he come in contact withthose th
who were so fortunate as to make his R
acquaintance and spend a short time in L
his presence were ever after that glad GJ
that they had met him S
He was said to be the finest business o
man in Central Kentucky His good P
qualities and they could not be num te
bered so predominated in his makeup dt
that any defect he might have and we of
an have some of one kind and some of
another that his good qualities over ei
shadowedit to that extent that we hard tj
ly noticed it His fine looks his cheer 01
ful disposition and bis friendly meeting w
with all people made him a welcome w
guest at all homes and gatherings His
death so shocked me that 1 could hard v
ly realize that Jo was dead He was a
friend and relation that I was proud of
I had looked forward and expected
great things from him but death sud
denly came when no one expected it
The Lord in his loving kindness and
tender mercies understands why he was
taken so young We do not but one
thing we do know that the Lord has
never turned a deaf ear to his people
who desire his salvation and I have n
the greatest faith that Jo was saved
and by our blessed Savior who was
never known to refuse any one who
called on him and especially those who r
had believed on and accepted Him and
publicly confessed him by word Qr by
attaching himself to the church May t
the Lord remember us all in mercy and vi
enable us to live m that manner and
faith that we will all meet him in a
better land where we will not have to
say goodbye to our loved ones and
friends I assure you I mourn with you
in your loss of such a good boy o
