In memory
Of my father who passed away a year ago today, April 12, 1938.
It fills my eyes with blinding tears,
My heart it sibs with breaking pain.
While tears of grief they fall like rain;
His voice so sweet I seem to hear,
It even rings upon my ear;
His smiling face lives in my sole,
And lead me on toward Heaven's goal.
Just inside the pearly gates,
My dear Dad for me awaits,
When my life on earth shall end,
Then on Canaan's sunny shore,
We'll be happy evermore.
His daughter, Mrs. NORA THOMASSOM, Onton, Kentucky.


Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock little Louise Thompson, the two year old daughter of Mr. And Mrs. W.I. Thompson, obeyed the divine summons of her Savior, "Suffer little children to come unto me," and her soul took its flight through the "Pearly Gates Ajar" into the presence of her Father, and eternal bliss.
She was a sufferer for a little more than a week, and death came as a guiding providence, however, inscrutable it may seem. The funeral was preached at the family residence at 3 p.m. Thursday by Rev. J.W. Lewis, the interment taking place at the city cemetery. A large number of friends were present to console and sympathize with the bereaved parents, and may God's tendered mercy rest upon them in this hour of gloom.
