From The Herald and Advertiser 09 Apr 1909

Resolutions on the Death of Mrs Martha Grimes, By Elim Baptist Church Mrs. Martha Grimes, widow of Calvin Grimes, deceased, was born June 1, 1829, and died Jan. 19, 1909. Five children survive her, namely: Mrs. J.T. Cash, Mrs. John Haisten, Mrs. E. Barfield, Calvin Grimes and Mort Grimes. In many respects, Sister Grimes was an ideal woman; modest, gentle and pure. She delighted in goodness and exercised charity toward all. The manner of her going away was doubtless an answer to her prayer. After singing several favorite songs and assuring those around her of being in the presence of God, her soul took its flight from earth to heaven. Though her shoulders were stooped with the burden of a long life, to those who knew her she was beautiful. What a gentle hand in sickness, what a voice to sooth pain! And was there anyone who could so fill up a room with peace, purity and light as she? What a sad day it was when the children and grandchildren came home and she could not greet them, for her voice was forever stilled. Come back, mother, take your old place in the home; open and read to us from the bible; kneel and pray; and look upon us, as of old. But, no, it would not be fair to call you back. You had troubles, aches and bereavements enough while here. Tarry by the throne until we join you. Keep a place right beside you for us, your sons and daughters, in the eternal homestead of God. As a church, be it resolved; 1. That we thank God for the life of this dear sister and submit to His will in placing this, one of His brightest jewels, in his Home above, and thank Him for the assurance that she is reaping the reward of the faithful. 2. That we extend to the family our sympathy. 3. That a copy of these resolutions be placed upon the minutes of our church. Adopted, March 6, 1909. C.B. GrimesJ.A. BilboMrs. J.C. JacksonMrs. L.M.
