Resolutions From Sunday School Class on Death of Walter Yarbrough.

The following resolutions were adopted by the Methodist Sunday school class, of which Walter Yarbrough was a member:

Whereas, God in his all wise Providence has seen fit to remove from our midst our friend and classmate, Mr. Walter Yarbrough and as his death is a sad loss to us, not only because we learned to love and respect him during the months of his membership in our class, but his brave loyal Christian life was ever an inspiration to us and we feel that we could illy afford to lose him as one of our number.

We offer as individuals and as a class, our love and sympathy to the bereaved loved ones, also our prayers that God may comfort each of them in this sad loss.

And we feel that in going away there is a tie which binds us to the Home prepared for us, as one of our members is safe in that Heavenly Home where there is no sickness nor sorrow and where pain and all other ills in life are unknown.

It is not death to die,
To leave the weary world
And midst the brotherhood on high
To be at home with God.

It is not death to close
The eye long dimmed by tears,
And wake in glorious repose
To spend eternal years.

Jesus, thou Prince of life
Thy chosen can not die
Like thee, they conquer in the strife
To reign with thee on high.

Mr. W. W. Daniel, Pres.
Mr. Zim Jackson, Sec.
Mr. Milo Collins, Treas.
Mrs. Ruohs Pyron.
