Friday 16 Apr 1920, Vol 33, No 52--IN MEMORY OF W. W. MATTOCKS--Died April 7, 1920, at 5:15 a.m., in Pueblo, Colo., aged 46 years, 3 months and 13 days. He had been in the state hospital in that place about thirteen months, his mind being affected from that dread disease, flu. He had been an invalid most all his life, having to quit school at the age of ten. He had been a member of the Baptist church at Pueblo for about ten years. He leaves to mourn his departure his wife and two sons; a dear old mother, Mrs. Jane Mattocks of this place; one sister, Mrs. Lena Edwards, also of Higbee; two brothers, James Mattocks of 2867 Arlington Ave., St. Louis, and Charles Mattocks of Chaffee, Mo. He was well known in Higbee, having resided here many years, but went to Colorado ten years ago for his health.
--When he was here to visit us three years ago last Christmas, he gave evidence that he was a Christian boy, so we can say that he is not dead, but sleepeth. Some sweet day, by and bye, we shall meet him again over there where there is no sickness, no pain, nor death. Willie has only paid the debt we will all have to pay sooner or later. God grant that when the summons comes we shall be as ready as Willie was. No doubt he longed for the touch of the hand of a mother, who never ceased to pray for him, night and day. Someday, some time, we will understand. "The Lord giveth, and the Lord taketh away,Blessed be the name of the Lord." MOTHER, BROTHERS, SISTER.
