MOOMAW CHILD LAID TO REST AT FAIRVIEW CHURCH
Broadway, May 18 --- John Allen Moomaw, three year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Lonnie Moomaw, died last Thursday at the home of his grandfather, John McNeal, of the New Dale community, near here, from a blood disorder. Funeral services wee held from the Fairview Church of the Brethren, near New Market, the Rev. Zepperer, of Mt. Jackson, officiating.
For several weeks, the lad suffered from a blood disorder. Two weeks ago he was taken to the University Hospital for radium treatment with little hope of improvement. He was returned home after five days and gradually grew weaker.
Pallbearers were Melvin and Miller Holsinger, Jesse and Victor Holsinger, while Misses Hazel Miller, Gladys and Rheta Holsinger, Vivian Goode, Evelyn Kingan, Marie and Madaleen Mills, Pauling Riggleman, Geneva Holsinger, and Marie Higgs carried the flowers.
Harrisonburg (Virginia) Daily News Record, Friday, May 13, 1927:
In sad but loving remembrance of
our dear little grandson, John Allen
Moomaw, who departed this life one
year ago today, May 13, 1926:
Today our hearts are heavy;
Our thoughts are all of thee;
How we love and how we miss thee,
None but God in Heaven can see.
You left a memory fair and sweet,
Its fragrance shall never die;
Your life was short, pure and sweet,
When God called you on high.
When all the world is cheerful,
And smiles are on each brow,
Oh, blame us not for weeping;
We have no John Allen now.
House is sad, oh, God how dreary;
Lonesome, lonely, every spot;
Listening for his voice til weary,
Weary, for we hear it not.
When the evening shades are falling
And we are sitting all alone,
To our hearts there comes a longing
If our darling would come home.
Sadly missed by his grandparents,
Mr. and Mrs. John F. McNeal; great-
grandmother, Susan Holsinger; and
devoted aunt, Iona McNeal.
