Charles Finley Durham Jr., was born March 31, 1925, at Sitka, Kansas, and departed this life December 8, 1927, in Ashland, Kansas, at the age of two years, eight months and seven days.

His mother preceded him on March 28, 1927.

Junior was his father's pet, he being greatly fond of his father, who will greatly miss his kind and loving face, also his sweet voice in words and laughter.

While he has only been with us a short period of two and one half years, yet we know that he is far better off than we, since he has gone to be with Him who gave his little life to us for this brief period. He has taken his place among those like himself at the right hand of his Father and ours of whom Jesus said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."

He leaves to mourn his loss his father, Charles F. Durham, two brothers, Leland Russell, and Eldon; also two grandmothers and one grandfather; Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Dorsey, of Sitka, Kansas; and Mrs. O. G. Durham, Rosston, Oklahoma; and a host of friends.

His death was caused by pneumonia from which he suffered about one week.

The funeral services were held from the Methodist Church of Ashland, Friday afternoon at two o'clock with the pastor, Rev. R. L. Foster preaching the sermon. Interment was made in Highland cemetery.

Good bye little friend. We will meet you in the morning when the mists have rolled away, and our night has changed to one eternal day.
