Mr. Bailey is survived by many friends and relatives who mourn his loss and who deeply sympathize with the sorrowing and afflicted family.
Peaceful be thy silent slumbers, peaceful in the realms of God: yet for thee we're deeply mourning, since we've laid thee beneath the sod.
And to Jesus we resign thee, far beyond this earthly climb. While with angels thou art dwelling, out beyond the shores of time, and for thee the battle's ended, while thy armour's been laid down.
Amongst the angels thou art waiting, to receive a harp and crown. While we miss thee from our circle, and sadly view thy vacant chair: We know in Jesus thou art sleeping as we breathe our evening prayer.
