Clarence Homer Howell
Birth: Apr. 28, 1919
Fulton County
Georgia, USA
Death: Feb. 29, 1920
Fulton County
Georgia, USA

Children are indeed a blessing from God. The excitement at feeling that first movement in the womb; the wonder of new life as you examine your newborn, counting all the fingers and toes; the joy of that moment when he first grabs hold of your finger; watching his growing wonder with everything around him, and trying to make sure nothing can harm him as he gets into everything.

The thought of losing a child is unthinkable for a parent, but the unthinkable happened. While reeling from the shock of losing his 2-year-old sister, Dorothy, to influenza and pneumonia, Homer's parents lost him to the same disease. He was only 10 months old, but only a parent knows just how much life can happen in just 10 months.

The funeral notice appeared in The Atlanta Constitution and read as follows:

HOWELL--HOWELL--The friends and relatives of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Howell, Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Howell and Mrs. Wheeler Lowery are invited to attend the funeral of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Howell's infant son, Homer, and their little daughter, Dorothy, this (Monday) afternoon, March 1, 1920, at 2 o'clock from Howell's cemetery. Funeral party leaving at 1 o'clock from the residence, 177 Luckie street. Awtry & Lowndes Co., funeral directors, in charge.

After the funeral The Atlanta Constitution ran the following article:

The double funeral of Dorothy, 2 years of age, and Clarence Homer, 10 months old, children of Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Howell, of 17 Luckie street, was held Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Howell church. Dorothy died Friday at a private hospital and her brother's death followed Sunday, both resulting from influenza. The mother and another small daughter were ill with this same disease and were unable to attend the funeral. The children are survived by a sister; their parents and their grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. H. C. Howell.

I asked these Foxes to hang around so you would have some friends if you choose to come by.
