On August 7th, 1927, the death angel visited the home of Mr. and Mrs. Jean Adkinson and took from them their loving son Ruel. He was born and reared in this community and was loved by all who knew him and he will be sadly missed by his many friends. He was born August 10th, 1906, and died August 7th, 1927. All through the long eight weeks of suffering Ruel was so patient and kind. He never suffered so much but what he always gave each and every one a kind word and a happy smile. The sweetest and best consolation of all is that on Sunday morning, July 23rd, 1927, he turned his back on earthly things and gave his life to God. He from that day was so beautiful you could just see the glory in his poor little bony face. It is so hard to give him up, but God always knows best. It is such a consolation for his poor heart- broken parents and sweet wife that he has left behind him to know that they will meet him on that beautiful shore where partings come no more. It is so sad to give up our loved ones whom we have lived with here on earth so long. It almost breaks our hearts to know that never again on this earth can we meet them again. But all was done for him that loving hands could do, and God had a better work for him where the soul will never die. Ruel leaves a heart-broken wife and two little children, his father and mother, two brothers and many other relatives and a host of friends to mourn his death. Our hearts go out in deepest sympathy to them.

Ruel was laid to rest in New Hope Cemetery and the funeral service was conducted by Rev. Frank Adcock. A host of relatives and friends attended the funeral and his grave was sweetly decorated with beautiful flowers. "A precious one from us is gone; a voice we love is stilled; a place is vacant in his home which never can be filled. God in His wisdom has recalled the boon His love had given, and though the body slumbers here, the soul is safe in Heaven. Written by his cousin, Eura McGuire and Gale Robinson.
