FLANNAGIN-At Grenada Hospital, of ruptured appendix, June 26, 1934, Louis Young Flannagin. His illness was of short duration, having died on the ninth day after operation. The symptoms in this case were of such a nature that even his family physician, though efficient, was unable to reach a diagnosis of his case.
Brother Flannagin was one of those lovable characters whose life was one sweet song. Sometimes it is difficult to word an obituary; but the only difficulty in this case, is to check the flow of tears as you admire the petals of this early-plucked flower.
"Young" was of Irish-English-Norwegian extract. His mother spent her earlier days in Norway. The Flannagins are all staunch members of the Valley Advent Christian Church. The following brothers and sisters are left to mourn Young's passing of such a devoted, trust-worthy brother; and to rejoice in such a beautiful death: Mrs. John George, Mrs. Edgar Hammons, Mrs Mac Harper, Mrs. Connie Chriss, Messrs John, Kemp, and Bryant Flannagin of Carrollton, Miss.
Young was born July 6, 1897, died June 26, 1934. The interment was at Pisgah Cemetery, near the Flannagin home. Words are inadequate to express the true estimation of the trust-worthiness and lovableness of this character, as held by those who knew him. It is stated that his demise has been more discussed and lamented than the passing of any one in this community, preceding.
His banker is quoted as having said; "There is no one of my customers whose business was more trustworthy and affable." An old Southern darkey remarked, "This is one man who was loved alike by both white and black."
His heart-broken, aged, mother-in-law is quoted as having said, "I'd rather have given up my daughter." which is her only child.
Young said from the first, "I've had my warning, I am going to die," and though he was constantly assured by his doctor that his progress was very satisfactory, yet he never once doubted that he had been informed of his coming death. He called his wife to his bedside and told her how to settle and manage the business.
Young, while perfectly rational, had a clear vision of the Holy City, as that given by John, and he said, "That's my home." this he said as he pointed to heaven. He wondered why others couldn't see the city and hear the beautiful strains of music emanating there from. Thereafter, he frequently sang, "I am going to my beautiful home." Young told his wife to see that the children attended church and the Sunday School. His children are Gladys, Giles, and Lloyd.
May God help us all to have enough of the Spirit that beautified and governed this life to enable us to meet him in that city that our God permitted him to view. The last rites were performed by our dear Brother Ames, and the Baptist pastor, Brother Sellers. Young, rest in peace, you surely will not have to wait long.
