Son of Richard Hatche Fowler, Sr. and Fannie Swaim Fowler.

DEATH OF BABY VISITING IN ARLINGTON
Little Richard Fowler, age two and one-half years, son of Mrs. Fannie Fowler of Frederick, Oklahoma, died at the home of his aunt, Mrs. Joe Anderson, Friday, November 28, and was buried the same afternoon in the Arlington Cemetery.

Mrs. Fowler and little Richard were spending the Thanksgiving holidays with Mr. and Mrs. Anderson when the baby suddenly became very ill of membranous croup and died early Friday morning. Everything that was possible was done for the little boy but God saw fit to take him to his heavenly home.

The little boy (was) survived by his mother and several aunts and uncles. He is related to the Swaim, Fowler and Collins families of the Arlington communities.

A large number of relatives and friends attended the funeral services which were held at the Anderson home. Many beautiful flowers were massed upon the little grave and showed how greatly little Richard and his mother were loved in Arlington. The sincere sympathy of hundreds of friends is being offered the bereaved and some comfort for those who are suffering intense sorrow is found in the thought that
"Ere sin could blight,
Or sorrow fade,
Death came with friendly care,
The opening bud to heaven conveyed
And bade it blossom there."
-- Arlington Journal, December 4, 1925
