In Memoriam.

MINNIE LEE, little daughter of I. M. and Mollie Smith, was born Feb. 1st, 1895, and sweetly fell asleep in Jesus May 9th, 1901. She suffered only seven days and nights, but oh! Such suffering hasn’t been witnessed by family and friends in a lifetime; was taken with a hard spasm from that time until death came, never had a minute’s ease.  She was a sweet child, obedient, loving, kind, affectionate and agreeable in all her little plays.

We will miss her, oh! So much, but God “doeth all things well, therefore we know He did not err in taking this precious little lamb to live with Him and her two little sisters, who preceded her to the better land.

Beautiful little hands of Minnie, Lorene and an infant are beckoning father, mother, brothers and sisters to come on to the glory land, where they all can sing the songs Minnie could sing so well here, for a child of six summers.

May God’s richest blessings rest on the bereaved one is the prayer of one who loved her.

Mrs. Mat Upshaw.
