In Memory of Eunice Crain
To the Herald)
The Hamilton Record and Rustler of 12 August, 1918
Mary Eunice Crain, the little four-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Crain passed out of this world August 9, 1915, to dwell with her Heavenly Father.
She had not been well for several weeks, but was not dangerously ill for more than two days before death claimed her, and she was summoned to that home beyond to await the coming of her many loved ones. Eunice was a bright and beautiful child loved by all who knew her. All that medical skill and tender loving care could do was done but God in his infinite wisdom called her from this life to one free of sorrows and trials. Though it is hard to give up one loved so well and though our lives will be darkened and lonely by the exit of this little life, , yet it was God's time. "He only claimed his own" and we should bow to humble submission to the will of our all wise Creator--who doeth all things well.
Put away the little dresses,
That our darling used to wear,
She will need them on earth never,
She has climbed the golden stair,
She is with the happy angels,
And I long for her sweet kiss
Where her little feet are waiting,
In the realm of perfect bliss.
Lay aside her little playthings,
Wet with mother's pearly tears.
How we'll miss our little Eunice,
All the coming weary years.
Fold the dainty little dresses
that she never more will wear
For her little feet are waiting,
Up above the golden stair.
Kiss the little curly tresses,
Cut from her bright golden hair,
Do the angels kiss our darling,
In the realm so bright and fair.
Oh, we pray to meet our darling,
For the long, long sweet embrace,
Where the little feet are waiting,
And we'll meet there face to face.
A host of deeply sympathizing and sorrowing friends and relatives followed little Eunice to the Blue Ridge cemetery where she was laid to rest. Bro. Hobart Waldrop conducting the funeral services. All offer their sincere sympathy to the bereaved parents in their irreparable loss.
