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.
