Hopkinsville New Era - Nov. 2, 1886
Died - on 31 of October, 1886, of flux, Ida Lee Clark, daughter of Robert and Pernieca Clark, aged 2 years. After a brief but painful illness the spirit of little Ida returned to the God, who gave it, and her mortal remains were carried to their final resting place, while loving hands covered the mound with beautiful flowers -- fit emblems of the bright life that has passed away. Too young to know anything of the stern realities of existence, surrounded by kind and loving relations, she had never known a sorrow that could not be soothed by a father's kind word or mother's fond kiss. To the sorrowing ones we would say, weep not as these who have no hopes but put your trust in Him, who alone can heal the broken hearted or comfort the bereaved, and rejoice that it is your privilege to meet little Ida in the sweet by and by, where death shall never make its inroad in the family circle, churches or society, to call the fairest flowers, and leave sad hearts to mourn the loss of absent loved ones.
