A precious one from us has gone
A voice we loved is still
A place is vacant in our home
Which never can be filled.
God in his wisdom has recalled the boon this love had given and though the body slumbers, still the soul is safe in Heaven. Wife and Daughter.
The death angel visted the home of Mr. J. B. Estes last Friday morning and took Mr. Estes to his home in Heaven. Mr. Estes was a member of the Aetna Grove Baptist Church. He will be sadly missed but God knew best.
