After a painful and lingering illness of six weeks, little Ivie Wentworth, son of Mr. and Mrs. Iverson Day, departed this life at noon on the eighteenth day of this month. He was twenty months old on the day of his death, and the youngest of eleven children. He was the first to lead the way to the Home above.
Words are all too weak to express our sympathy for the bereaved ones. Time cannot heal the wound it only deadens the pain. We commend you, dear friends, to the care of the Heavenly Comforter, who alone can soothe your stricken hearts. You will miss your little Ivie, but his bright face has only been transferred to the circle above where it will shine forevermore. There you may join him when your mission has been fulfilled here below.
That bird-like voice, whose joyous tones
Made glad these scene of toil and strife,
Now sings an everlasting song
Around the tree of lite.
A Friend.
Death of Miss M. E. Crawford
The subject of this sketch was born in Liberty, Miss., February 10th, 1839, and died at Mrs. M. L.
Anderson's, where she had made her home for the past nine years. She was a most exemplary Christian lady. She leaves a great many warm, devoted friends in this neighborhood. The most devoted and those that will miss her most outside her relatives, are those who were associated with her in her Christian walks and acts. She was always willing and ready to help in every good cause with her services and means. She leaves a brother and other relatives to mourn her death. Rest in peace. I. G. L.
