The deceased needs no eulogy from the lips, or pen of man for his life speaks more eloquently that words interred by the most eloquent human tongues and expresses a message mightier than the most fitted tongue could conceive and yet though life hands fourth in the light of the language of silence, in is bat (sp?) meet that we should desire to light little feeble lamps of testimony while at best are poor reflections of his virtues. His light burns in his house, he was a lover of home. Having been a faithful and devoted husband and love and providing father. His light burned steadily in the church as a consciencious member, a dutiful officer and a devoted christian. He was a helpful neighbor, a steadfast friend and a peace aiding, law observing and enterprising citizen. One can not but help believe that he merits the splender of his Master. "Well done. Thou good and faithful Servant. Enter into the Joys of the Lord"
