Birth: Aug. 15, 1897
Death: Mar. 18, 1910

LOVINGTON REPORTER 3/18/1910

WILLIE ALEXANDER, ELDEST SON OF MR. AND MRS. STANTON ALEXANDER, WAS BORN AUG 16, 1897, DIED MARH 18, 1910 AT THE HOME OF HIS STEPFATHER AND MOTHER, MRS. AND MRS. BEN STEED. HE HAD BEEN SICK A NUMBER OF WEEKS BUT WAS THOUGHT TO HAVE BEEN CONVALESCING UNTIL ABOUT TEN DAYS BEFORE HIS DEATH WHEN HE SUFFERED A RELAPSE FROM WHICH HE DID NOT RECOVER.
HE IS SURVIVED BY HIS MOTHER, TWO SISTERS AND ONE BROTHER AND A STEPFATHER WHO HAS BEEN A VERITABLE FATHER TO HIM IN ALL HIS SICKNESS. TO THESE AND THE AGED GRANDPARENTS WE EXTEND THE SYMPATHY OF OUR HEARTS IN THIS TIME OF SORROW.
THE FUNERAL WAS CONDUCTED AT THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH MONDAY MORNING AND THE INTERMENT WAS IN THE HEWITT CEMETERY.
WILLIE WAS A BRIGHT AMBITIOUS BOY WITH A HOST OF FRIENDS AS THE LARGE CONCOURSE AT THE FUNERAL SIGNIFIED. HE FOUGHT BRAVELY FOR HIS LIFE BUT BORE HIS SUFFERINGS PATIENTLY. WE SHALL MISS HIS BRIGHT SMILE BUT TO OUR SORROW WE ARE COMFORTED BY THE WORDS OF THE MASTER'
"HE IS NOT DEAD BUT SLEEPETH"
