It becomes our sad duty to announce the death of Lawrence Rose of this grief stricken community, who passed away at his home last Thursday evening, January 21st 1915.

The deceased had been suffering with a prolonged illness for a long time. Several months ago he was taken seriously ill, and so was confined to his bed. At times the young man appeared to be improving nicely, but gradually the worse became known, and severe pains again attacked him. The principle cause of his death was due to a weak heart, this has been affecting him for quite a number of years.

The Guardian Angel called Lawrence from a world of suffering, unhappiness and untold misery, to a brighter and a happier home to the Great Beyond. Still, we wish to say that during the young man's period of increased suffering, he was never known to complain of his suffering, or of feeling weary and downhearted. He always met friends and relatives who came to soothe and comfort him, with a bright and cheerful face, and kind words. He never had any unhappy words to utter in behalf of his illness, but took his pains as they came to him.

During the young man's life, he was always goodhearted, true and kind, never had any burning words of thought for anyone, and Lawrence was very popular among his friends and other associates. Although he was young and in his prime of life, only just growing into manhood, he was plucked from his blossom of youth, to the paleness of death. It brings to memory the old adage: The Old MUST die, but the young MAY die, God's will be done, Not ours." The deceased leaves to mourn his sad death, his mother, one brother and one sister. We wish to extend to the bereaved ones our sincere sympathy and affection in their hour of sad affliction.

The funeral was held in the Thomas M.E. church, Saturday afternoon, at 2:00 o'clock, January 23rd 1915. Reverend Ozonne of Hazel delivering the last sad rites, giving a very fine sermon in the behalf of the sorrow-stricken relatives. After the funeral services the remains were laid in their final resting place in oxford Cemetery, west of the church.

"Gone, but not forgotten"
A previous one from us has gone;
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled,
God in his wisdom has recalled,
The boon His love hath given;
And though the body slumbers here:
His soul is safe in Heaven!

The farmers institute which was to have been held last Saturday was called off on account of the funeral of Lawrence Rose. Hamlin County Herald, February 5, 1915
