In Memory of Our Little Nephew

The angel of death visited the home of Mr and Mrs Orbee Freeman on December 31, 1904 and took from them their darling baby, aged one month, one week, one day .

By this death God has taken from us one of the brightest lights of that happy home. Weep not father and mother for your darling has gone. but we hope to meet him in that happy home above, where pain and death never come. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh. Weep not for the Lord needeth one more little angel in his heavenly home. He was the first born little darling. He is now safe in the arms of our loving Savior, Jesus Christ. He was innocent and his life was pure. His parents should remember that their sweet precious baby child has escaped the troubles and trials of this life. A little flower the bright and beautiful from this earth has been transplanted to bloom in heaven and deck the courts of glory. Jesus said "Suffer little children, come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven". May the great shepherd lead the parents along the pathway of holiness and through the pearly gates into the city of God where all tears will be wiped away.
