In Memoriam.

Whereas, It has pleased our Heavenly Father to take from our midst our sister, Cally Richards—who died on the 6th of May, 1889. She was a consistent Christian. She read her Bible daily, she was a devoted and loving mother. She leaves behind six dear little children and husband, besides scores of friends who sorrow with their grief stricken family at their bereavement. Her lovely disposition and Christian character endeared her to the hearts of all who knew her, and who died as she had lived trusting her Savior. Therefore the “Woman’s Aid Society” of Cross Roads church testify their appreciation of her in the following resolutions.

First, That in her death we have lost a zealous laborer—that we deeply deplore our loss and truly sympathize with the bereaved family in their sad affliction with the prayer that they strive to meet her in the “Beautiful beyond.”

2nd. That while we mourn with sadness, we believe our loss is her eternal gain, and we are admonished to be likewise ready. “Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep. From which none ever wake to weep.”

3rd. That a copy of these resolutions be furnished the family of the deceased and a copy be sent to the Courant American for publication.
