DIED in Cartersville, on June 5th, 1873, LILLIAN SIMPSON, infant daughter of Thos and Mary A. STALL, aged 20 months and 19 days.

Death’s untimely frost fell upon this little bud before the time of blooming, and loving parental hearts are left in a desolate maze.  Eyes that watched the pleasing development of a blended life with kindling beams, are now dim with tears, and hearts that swelled with the fond anticipations of living again in the expanding form of their child, are stricked desolate and confounded.

By the removal of this little one, another household is brought into the circle of the bereaved, and is henceforth linked to the sorrowing families of earth.

“There is no flock, however watched and tended,
But our dead lamb is there,
There is no fireside, how so e’er defended,
But has a vacant chair.”

But the eye of faith turns away from the visible to the invisible, and even amid the heart-crushing scenes of earth, is kindled with the bright visions just ahead.  The floweret plucked from earth and paled by death’s icy touch, is seen blooming with unfading beauty in the Paradise of God.

“Let not your hearts be troubled.  In my Father’s house there are many mansions.”

Little Lillian is with Jesus, and death can no more touch her.  Bereaved, believing parents shall join their little ones in those mansions, and God himself shall wipe away all tears, and re-unite indissolubly his own in an eternal family circle. – PASTOR
