In Memory of Annie
Annie E. Weedon, daughter of Wyatt and Judith Weedon, was born in Mason county, Ky., March 8th, 1858; died July 16th, 1890, of consumption, after a long and painful illness.
She was converted and united with the Methodist Episcopal church, South, at the early age of 13 years under the ministry of Rev. L. Rush, and lived a christian life and died a victor's death.
For weeks her suffering had been terrible to witness, and she prayed to her Savior to release her from her pain. She spoke of death as calmly as of going to sleep. She called us all about her, kissed each one farewell, and prayed God that each one of us might meet her in heaven, and finally, as she felt death's icy fingers on her brow, she folded her little, weak, tired hands upon her breast and softly, sweetly sank to rest; silently drifted out upon that surging, mystic sea that rolls round humanity, whose waves lash the shores of eternity. Almost her last words were, "I'm going home to die no more." Dear sister, you have indeed gone home. Our home circle is fast being made complete in heaven. Those who saw her die saw how the christian dies.
Annie was a noble, high-sould[sic], pure woman. Strictly truthful, brave, self-reliant, courageous n the face of difficulties; strong in the face of trouble; a stay, a comfort, a help-mate to her widowed mother; a benediction to her sisters and brother. She left many loving messages to absent friends and earnestly entreared[sic] others to prepare to meet her in heaven. Dear, patient Annie, may we be as ready, as willing to depart when the summons comes as you were, and realize as you, that we are going home. CALLIE W.G.
