THE SOUTH NEWSPAPER
Wednesday, August 30, 1911
Near Cornersville, Miss., August 15, 1911, Curtis Tucker, son of Mr. and Mrs. Houston Tucker, age 19 years. He was sick only a few short days. His early death is a matter of regret to his friends and a severe loss to his parents,brother and sister. He was so obedient to his father and mother, never returning a word when told to do a task. Curtis was of a cheerful, kindly nature and was devoted to his church, the Baptist, of which he became
a member about one year ago. He was always at Sunday School, was devoted to his brother and sisters. Obedient and dutiful to his teacher, loving and kind to his school mates and his presence in the school room will be missed, and there will be a vacant seat left. All who knew Curtis loved him.
His remains were interred from the church Wednesday morning, Rev. Jack Jones preached a touching
sermon to the unconverted, saying so many good things about Curtis, and spoke comforting words to the bereaved family. In behalf of the family I will say:
A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is still,
A place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.
Oh! Sad! Sad!
We will never see his face here, sweet thought that he has left toiling and suffering for that happy home "over there".
A Devoted Friend
