On the 16th of June, 1883, Willie Harris, youngest son of W. H. and M. E. Hood, aged five years and six months.

The removal of this little one to the “goodly land,” where there is no more sickness and death, was peculiarly distressing to the parents. So unlooked for was it to the father, leaving home for only an hour or two, got back home to find his precious boy dead. We live in a land of sad surprises now, but we “look for one,” whither the “Good Shepherd” hath taken this little boy, when the former things of this troubled life shall have passed away. May the parents of this bereavement and all like sorrows (and they are many) be comforted with the blessed hope of the everlasting reunion just ahead. May the words of Israel’s pious king give these bereaved parents the holy resolve he had: “I cannot bring my child back to me, but I can go to him.”—Pastor.
