Walter Eddleman.

Only son of E. L. and S. A. Eddleman, was born in Bartow county, Georgia, June the 12th, 1871, and departed this life, Sunday evening at 8:15 o’clock.  He was of a sweet, gentle disposition, greatly beloved by all the family.  Although 17 years of age, that childlike gentleness of spirit had not left him, and he did not think it beneath him to render implicit obedience to his parents.

He was taken sick three months ago, and since that time was never well, but bore patiently his continued suffering from several diseases.  Murmurings never fell from his lips, and as the end drew nearer, his spiritual sky grew brighter, and when it was told him that the end was not far distant, he joyfully assured his father that he was ready. Oh, how beautiful to be ready to depart in peace!  Calmly he “fell asleep” in Jesus. Just budding into youthful manhood, he laid his body down, to take up a life of perpetual youth, unsullied by the evils of this life, unwearied by the toils of time and unmeasured by the flight of years.  There amid the bliss that awaits the people of God, his soul is at rest, and waits to welcome the bereaved loved ones home.  While our hearts break with pain, we praise God for the blessed hope of an unbroken family around His throne in Heaven, where amid the Heavenly spirits we shall meet the loved ones gone before.
