|IN REMEMBRANCE OF MRS. LOU SAWYER
On Monday morning Jan. 18 1921 the death angel entered the home of
Sawyer and took from him his devoted mother. No one ever knew her only
love her. She was always so kind and willing to lend a helping hand
But Oh ! our hearts are aching and sad we don't feel like the pain
heal and yet we know our Heavenly Father doeth all things well and
bow in humble submission to His holy will.
Her soul is only sleeping
So why for us to weep
There'll come a time of meeting
Where all is joy and love
And soon we'll be greeting
Our dear friends above.
Sweetest thoughts will ever linger
'Round the grave where you're laid
There were angle bands in Heaven
Which were not quite complete
So God took our dear friend
To fill the vacant seat.
Written by one who loved her,
MRS. F. A. STEWART
124 N. 52 St.
In Memory Of J. T. Gaultney
It is with sad and tender thoughts that we write the memoriam of our
brother, Mr. J. T. Gaultney, who was called from his earthly home Jan.
1921 to dwell with his Father above in a home not made with hands.
sad it was to stand by him and see his life ebb away and see his
brokenhearted companion left alone in this dark and weary world. God
best so we will leave it all to Him and say good bye John till we meet
above. Weep not for him for he is at his eternal rest.
Our dear brother joined the Baptist Church when he was quite a young
and lived a consecrated Christian life. We will miss him so much at
on preaching day for he was always so loyal to attend his meetings.
a vacant place in the home and in the church which never can be filled.
John, you have left us
But we hope to meet you, John
On that bright and happy shore.
His last words were: "I feel alright" then his spirit took its flight
live with God who gave it.
His loving brother and sister,
MR.& MRS. FRANK GAULTNEY
