Died near McGinnis, Ga., at half-past four o’clock a. m., June 11, Kittie Leitner McGinnis, after a spell of suffering for nine weeks. It has pleased God to take from us one of the loveliest girls of our community. She was the daughter of S. T. and Fannie McGinnis. After manifesting faith in Jesus Christ, she called for each member of her family, threw her languid arms around them and pressed a parting kiss, asked them not to grieve – “Don’t cry, mama, it’s all well with me.” She entreated all to meet her in heaven. Blessed be the Lord. He done His blessed work before He called her. They can but grieve for one so happy, so contented; grief stills the troubled heart. She told her mother many times during her sickness that she never had a care in her life and knew that she was the happiest human on earth. When she saw that the Saviour was ready for her she too was ready and hastened to that sweet home where all is happy, all is bliss, where she can rest from her labor till the final judgment when all shall appear, where we feel assured she will be numbered with the blessed. She was borne to her last resting place on this earth by the young men of the community, all who loved her and showed they felt the loss of a dear friend. She was interred at the family graveyard on the Charles Sproull place. The community sympathize with the bereaved family.
