In Memory of Mrs. W.H. Ballew.
The Death Angel visited the home of Mr. W.H. Bellew on May 16th, 1928, and claimed the spirit of his beloved wife, Minnie. How true a saying that the good die young. Only a short time did Minnie live to brighten her home and our lives. She suffered many years with pellagra, yet today as our hearts are bruised and torn by sorrows bitter pangs, we look to God, the giver of all precious gifts, and only thank him for her Christian life, always ready to make any sacrifice to her Lord's will and now that she is no more in our circle, how brightly that pure life shines in our hearts, only making us nearer to God. She lived wo when her commons came she was not afraid to die. We know that she is with us no more, and oh how sad, but how much more be the heart of that good husband who stood by her to the very fast - whose life has been robbed of its sweetest joy. The home where he sees Minnie no more is all a deserted place, but husband and children, she beckons you to come up higher and meet her in her beautiful home, not made with earthly hands, but divine. My hearts meets in sympathy with you and your precious one, but God who notes the sparrows fall will not desert you in this dark hour of grief. Be comforter thy precious one. He kindly called away to garner with His treasures, safe from evils hastening day. Mourn not, have comfort in this though. He doeth all things well and pass the sorrows of this life, soon you shall safely dwell. Then you will have a sweet reward for all your love and cared - Minnie restored from death to life, joyfully immortal pair.
Now look for that glorious day;
May the waves of your grief be still,
The dearest friend, the King of Kings,
Most blessed in His will.
Dearest Minnie thou has left us,
Deeply we thy loss shall feel;
But 'tis God who has bereft us,
He can all our sorrows heal
Peaceful be thy silent slumber
Peaceful in the grave so low.
Thou more shall join our number,
Thou no more our songs shalt know;
Yet again we hope to meet thee
When the days of life are past
Then in heaven we hope to greet thee
Where no farewell tears are shed.

Written by Jessie and Willie Tidwell.
